In doing further research you will find Onesimus was a slave that fled his master, and later was caught and put in prison. Remember Paul was a prisoner. While on his Voyage he was still preaching and teaching the Gospel and winning souls to Christ. I believe as Paul ministered to Onesimus, Onesimus became a believer and Paul saw that he was true in his belief and drew Onesimus into him as a close friend, which later made him the bond servant that Paul speaks of. Remember Paul mentioned that Onesimus was first Unprofitable to Timothy, Philemon etc. But now he would be profitable and that he will no longer be a servant but above servants...God will pick you up from your lowest and will raise you up to a high place in him but you must know how to accept the elevation and work in your assignment under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

I think that this letter is the most profound letters of Paul yet. He shows his appreciation and looks out and wins another soul to God. Onesimus could have been at the end of his chances in life, He and Paul met up at the most critical time in each others life's, I do believe. With the knowledge of knowing Christ everything worked out fine. Bless God.

Who is my master?who is my brother?.I am profitable for nothing unless I have the good master molding and making his clay as he wishes and must make the choice to follow him.

Paul as a prisoner of the Lord Jesus Christ new that Onesimus ran away a slave, but became a brother in Christ. Paul appeals to Philemon to receive him as a brother, and to charge his account for anything that he owed. This is a picture of the Lord Jesus Christ who forgave us when he died on the Cross for us who were slaves to sin. Whom the Son has set free is free in deed, and now bond servants of the Lord Jesus Christ. After we have done all that he has commanded us to do, say that we are unprofitable servants, for we only did what he commanded.

It is really warm-heartening to read & feel the genuine camaraderie that existed between Paul, the teacher and Philemon, the willing bond-servant.

In this train of brilliant text, it is very clear that the definition of willing bond-servant and condemned slave are two very extremely different categories.
