Bible: Col 4:7-14

Personal Greetings and Instructions

4:7 Tychicus, a dear brother, faithful minister, and fellow slave 1  in the Lord, will tell you all the news about me. 2  4:8 I sent him to you for this very purpose, that you may know how we are doing 3  and that he may encourage your hearts. 4:9 I sent him 4  with Onesimus, the faithful and dear brother, who is one of you. 5  They will tell 6  you about everything here.

4:10 Aristarchus, my fellow prisoner, sends you greetings, as does Mark, the cousin of Barnabas (about whom you received instructions; if he comes to you, welcome him). 4:11 And Jesus who is called Justus also sends greetings. In terms of Jewish converts, 7  these are the only fellow workers for the kingdom of God, and they have been a comfort to me. 4:12 Epaphras, who is one of you and a slave 8  of Christ, 9  greets you. He is always struggling in prayer on your behalf, so that you may stand mature and fully assured 10  in all the will of God. 4:13 For I can testify that he has worked hard 11  for you and for those in Laodicea and Hierapolis. 4:14 Our dear friend Luke the physician and Demas greet you.
