There is a great need for refreshed hearts in our day and so the need for believers like Philemon is quite evident. There are many people with heavy hearts. Hearts that are discouraged, possibly through disillusionment or frustration. Hearts that have become hardened. And this is talking about believers – Christ followers – it’s much worse for those who do not have their hope in Christ. As disciples of Jesus we have the awesome privilege of bringing refreshment to the hearts of God’s people, just as we find rest, and refreshment in Him.
