Colossians 4:7-18 Tychicus will tell you all about my activities. He is a beloved brother and faithful minister and fellow servant in the Lord...
Sometimes I have a tendency to speed read or skim over the signing off portion of Paul's letters. But if it's included in the Bible, then God obviously intended for us to read and learn from it. So I took my time reading through verses 7-18 considering all the different people, their relationship with Paul, how they functioned together, etc. A number of things stood out to me, but the main thing that came across crystal clear, was the value and benefit of being connected with other believers--from one-on-one relationships to believers functioning together in a large body, even in different churches.
