Philemon 23–25 (ESV)

Final Greetings

23 Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, sends greetings to you, 24 and so do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke, my fellow workers. 

25 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.


Paul mentions five friends who serve with him or support him in the Gospel ministry. This is only part of the network of God’s people, which includes Onesimus, Philemon, and now us. We should cherish this network of fellowship and support and not take it for granted. God has called us into His kingdom and made us part of His family, and He will help us and use us to help and encourage one another.


I pray: Lord, make me a useful servant. Thank You for my near and extended family in Christ. Amen.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
