Very different than the rest of this letter, Paul talks about his travel plans and especially his relationship with two close friends: Timothy and Epaphroditus. Complimenting them both, Paul highlights attributes such as a genuine concern for the welfare of others, a servant’s heart, and a same-souled passion for the lost. How can we make friends like these men? How can we be a friend like these men? And will we put as our most prized friendship, the friendship we are invited into with God through his son Jesus Christ?
On Sunday we looked into Isaiah’s story, along with excerpts from the undone worship of both Jonah and Paul. Undone worship means coming to the end of ourselves so that God can restore us, heal us and send us into ministry!
