Tychicus, the dear brother and faithful servant in the Lord, will tell you everything, so that you also may know how I am and what I am doing. I am sending him to you for this very purpose, that you may know how we are, and that he may encourage you. Peace to the brothers and sisters, and love with faith from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love.
Could Paul have sent me, Lord? Am I a dear brother to other believers and a faithful servant to You? Do I bring encouragement when I arrive?
I am thankful for the many brothers and sisters You have sent me in my life who have offered encouragement to me. It is as if You were speaking through them to my heart. Of course, it doesn’t mean I don’t need to hear it again, Lord. I continue to need encouragement and You continue to offer it. It’s not a one time deal from You.
So help me to emulate You, Lord. Help me to offer peace to my brothers and sisters, and love with faith from You and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Help me to stand in Your place with my family in Christ and mediate Your love. May all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with undying love find grace to meet our every need and may we be very free with the grace we have received from You.
