Tychicus, my good friend here, will tell you what I'm doing and how things are going with me. He is certainly a dependable servant of the Master!
I've sent him not only to tell you about us but to cheer you on in your faith.
Good-bye, friends. Love mixed with faith be yours from God the Father and from the Master, Jesus Christ.
Pure grace and nothing but grace be with all who love our Master, Jesus Christ.
