By Don Ruhl

As Paul ended his letter to the Ephesian Church, he wanted them to know how he was doing. Therefore, he sent someone to report on his affairs,

But that you also may know my affairs and how I am doing, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, will make all things known to you; whom I have sent to you for this very purpose, that you may know our affairs, and that he may comfort your hearts (Ephesians 6.21–22). 

They should know how he was doing and he should know how they were doing. In fact, all Christians, at least within the local congregation, should know how all their brethren fare.


  • What percentage of the people in your congregation do you know?
  • How long have you worshiped there?
