Who would be in your list of friends?
Col. 4:7-8 Tychicus, our much-loved brother, will tell you how I am getting along. He is a hard worker and serves the Lord with me. I have sent him on this special trip just to see how you are and to comfort and encourage you.
Col. 4:11 And what a comfort they have been to me!
Col. 4:12 Epaphras, a member of your own fellowship and a servant of Christ Jesus, sends you his greetings. He always prays earnestly for you
Comfort, Encouragement, Prayer
Encouraging community in church is real
