By Don Ruhl

Paul spoke of Onesiphorus and his service toward Paul, that he was not ashamed of Paul’s chains, but looked for him zealously and then blessed him. In return, Paul said,

The Lord grant to him that he may find mercy from the Lord in that Day—and you know very well how many ways he ministered to me at Ephesus (2 Timothy 1.18). 

For serving a man of God, Onesiphorus would find mercy from the Lord “in that Day,” the Day of Judgment, and that is when we will all need it. Therefore, remember to serve others that the Lord may show you His mercy.


  • Do you serve others or expect to be served?
  • What can you do to serve a worker in the church?
