Onesimus

Thinking about Onesimus. His name meant useful. In life he was not. He was a thief. He did not live up to his name.
I am made in Gods image but I have not lived up to that. I have taken my body that was made to represent God and used it in ways that break His heart.
Onesimus was restored to be useful in a way much more beautiful than just as a slave.
I am crucified with Christ and he now lives in me. I have a new chance to display the image of the invisible God.

Your thoughts?
