Bible: Philippians 2:25-30

2:25 But for now 1  I have considered it necessary to send Epaphroditus to you. For he is my brother, 2  coworker and fellow soldier, and your messenger 3  and minister 4  to me in my need. 5  2:26 Indeed, he greatly missed all of you and was distressed because you heard that he had been ill. 2:27 In fact he became so ill that he nearly died. 6  But God showed mercy to him – and not to him only, but also to me – so that I would not have grief on top of grief. 2:28 Therefore I am all the more eager to send him, 7  so that when you see him again you can rejoice 8  and I can be free from anxiety. 2:29 So welcome him in the Lord with great joy, and honor people like him, 2:30 since it was because of the work of Christ that he almost died. He risked his life so that he could make up for your inability to serve me. 9
