Philippians 2:19-30 I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, so that I too may be cheered by news of you...
Relationships were important to Paul, and today we get a glimpse of two relationships that were special to him. Timothy was a chosen co-worker of Paul's, yet their relationship went well beyond simply work. Based on Paul's words there was obviously a strong friendship and bond between them. Epaphroditus was apparently sent by the Philippians to Paul, and I love how Paul refers to him as "my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier and your messenger and ministry to my need. . ." (vs. 25).
So what does this passage reveal about the importance of relationships within the Body of Christ? How important is it for you to be involved with other Christians? Tami W.
