To bring you up to date, Tychicus will give you a full report about what I am doing and how I am getting along. He is a beloved brother and faithful helper in the Lord’s work. I have sent him to you for this very purpose—to let you know how we are doing and to encourage you.” Ephesians 6:21-22 NLT
Thank God for brothers and sisters in Christ. There are those, like Tychicus, who are faithful, dependable, and helpful. He is mentioned five times in the Bible, all in the New Testament (Acts 20:4; Ephesians 6:21; Colossians 4:7-9; 2 Timothy 4:12; Titus 3:12). These people are the unsung heroes of the faith. I have known brothers and sisters in ministry who have been a great help and encouragement to me. Paul was most grateful for those who helped promote the gospel and who ministered to him as well. Who can you think of today that has been faithful, dependable, and helpful to the cause of Christ and also a blessing to you as well? Take a moment and thank God for them. Ask God to bless them today. You might want to give them a call, send them a text, go visit them, or something else. Don't wait. Do it today.
