Tychicus and Epaphras …

I’m sending Tychicus to you. He is our dear brother, trustworthy deacon, and partner in the Lord’s work. He will tell you everything that is happening to me. I’m sending him to you so that you may know how we are doing and so that he may encourage you … Epaphras, a servant of Christ Jesus from your city, greets you. He always prays intensely for you. He prays that you will continue to be mature and completely convinced of everything that God wants. 13 I assure you that he works hard for you and the people in Laodicea and Hierapolis” (Colossians 4:7-8,12-13).
In Colossians 4:7-18, we have ‘greetings from Paul and his co-workers.’ Two of these co-workers were Tychicus and Epaphras. What a great example they have set for us. Tychicus was “trustworthy.” He brought encouragement to others. Epaphras was a man of prayer and a hard worker. We need more people like them. We need to become more like them.
