"I jump into a sand pit for a living"

Jonathan Edwards, World record triple-jumper

Friends

Tychicus … is a dear brother, a faithful minister and fellow servant in the Lord. Colossians 4:7

Paul has finished his letter to the Colossians and is just putting in the greetings, things that we easily skip over but this passage has so much to remind us. Paul says of some of his friends and colleagues:

One is “a servant of Christ Jesus.”
Another “is working hard for you.”
Another is “always wrestling in prayer for you.”

Commenting on this passage, Jonathan Lamb writes: “Friends matter, friends encourage, friends pray, friends work hard”.

Do you have Christian friends who encourage you? Thank God for them. Tell them!

Do you have people you are consciously encouraging?

Who can you encourage in their faith today?
