Vryburg “Being such a one as Paul, the aged…, I appeal to you for my son Onesimus.” Philemon 1:9-10 The apostle Paul, referred to himself as “aged” in today’s text. Some scholars believe Paul was in his late forties or early fifties when he wrote this – certainly not a senior citizen by today’s standards. But life expectancy in those days was much shorter. Yet despite awareness of his mature years, Paul went on to serve the Lord for several more years. While we may experience physical or other kinds of limitations, what really matters is that we continue doing what we can for the Lord until He calls us Home. God can use you at any age if you are willing.
