Paul, in jail when he wrote this letter, was almost positive he was going to be executed by his Roman guards at any moment. Instead, he was released. But he really was ready to go be with Jesus.

It has great advice for all Christians. See that no one pays back evil for evil, but always try to do good to each other and to all people. May the Lord of peace give you His peace at all times. The Lord be with you all.

But men who want lots of money are tempted.
They are trapped into doing all kinds of foolish things and things which hurt them. These things drag them into sin and will destroy them. Paul hoped Timothy would take his place in doing the work Paul had been doing to spread the church.

Paul wrote this to his friend Philemon to ask him to be kind and not punish his runaway slave, Onesimus, who had become a Christian and who Paul was sending back to his master.
So let us step boldly to the throne of grace, where we can find mercy and grace to help when we need it most. There are many theories, but all we know is that he or she! Christ himself died for you. And that one death paid for your sins.

He was not guilty, but he died for those who are guilty. He did this to bring you all to God. His body was killed, but he was made alive in the spirit. Rather, he is patient for your sake. And this is the confidence that we have in him: if we ask for anything according to his will, he listens to us. And if we know that he listens to our requests, we can be sure that we have what we ask him for.
