Philippians 2:19-24

MSG 19 I plan (according to Jesus' plan) to send Timothy to you very soon so he can bring back all the news of you he can gather. Oh, how that will do my heart good! NIV 19 I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, that I also may be cheered when I receive news about you. MSG 20 I have no one quite like Timothy. He is loyal, and genuinely concerned for you. NIV 20 I have no one else like him, who takes a genuine interest in your welfare. MSG 21 Most people around here are looking out for themselves, with little concern for the things of Jesus. NIV 21 For everyone looks out for his own interests, not those of Jesus Christ. MSG 22 But you know yourselves that Timothy's the real thing. He's been a devoted son to me as together we've delivered the Message. NIV 22 But you know that Timothy has proved himself, because as a son with his father he has served with me in the work of the gospel. MSG 23 As soon as I see how things are going to fall out for me here, I plan to send him off. NIV 23 I hope, therefore, to send him as soon as I see how things go with me. MSG 24 And then I'm hoping and praying to be right on his heels. NIV 24 And I am confident in the Lord that I myself will come soon.
