I have thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, and your messenger and minister to my need, for he has been longing for you all and has been distressed because you heard that he was ill. - Philippians 2:25–26 (ESV) I recently learned a new skill. It's one that I have wanted to try for some time, but I've never had the occasion, equipment, and most importantly a teacher. A few weeks ago I tried welding for the first time. I'm not 'laying down dimes' as they say, but I can now stick a couple pieces of metal together in a pretty permanent way. Its fun and a little scary and I won't be leaving the pastorate for a career in fabrication anytime soon, but I would not have even attempted it without teacher (HT: to Ken S!) The Christian life is sort of like welding. You need to get the theology and you need to have some equipment. You also need people that will walk alongside you as you grow. This week in Philippians, we meet a few of those examples for the church at Phillipi - Timothy and Epaphroditus. These men were selflessly serving Paul and ultimately Christ. They were providing flesh and blood examples of what that looked like. This week Carson is opening up Philippians 2:19-30 to us. Will you take a few minutes and read it? Consider those that have provided not only instruction but example to you in your Christian life. What have you learned from them? How have they helped shape your journey?
