This good man is here immortalised. When he risked his life to find out and succour a poor despised prisoner, he little knew that he would live for ever on the page of the church’s history. His cup of cold water given to an apostle has received an apostle’s reward. Are there any yet alive like Paul to whom we might minister in love after the manner of Onesiphorus?
Stripp’d of my earthly friends,
I find them all in One;
And peace, and joy that never ends,
And heav’n, in Christ alone!
