Philippians 2:25-30

MSG 25 But for right now, I'm dispatching Epaphroditus, my good friend and companion in my work. You sent him to help me out; now I'm sending him to help you out. NIV 25 But I think it is necessary to send back to you Epaphroditus, my brother, co-worker and fellow soldier, who is also your messenger, whom you sent to take care of my needs. MSG 26 He has been wanting in the worst way to get back with you. Especially since recovering from the illness you heard about, he's been wanting to get back and reassure you that he is just fine. NIV 26 For he longs for all of you and is distressed because you heard he was ill. MSG 27 He nearly died, as you know, but God had mercy on him. And not only on him - he had mercy on me, too. His death would have been one huge grief piled on top of all the others. NIV 27 Indeed he was ill, and almost died. But God had mercy on him, and not on him only but also on me, to spare me sorrow upon sorrow. MSG 28 So you can see why I'm so delighted to send him on to you. When you see him again, hale and hearty, how you'll rejoice and how relieved I'll be. NIV 28 Therefore I am all the more eager to send him, so that when you see him again you may be glad and I may have less anxiety. MSG 29 Give him a grand welcome, a joyful embrace! People like him deserve the best you can give. NIV 29 So then, welcome him in the Lord with great joy, and honor people like him, MSG 30 Remember the ministry to me that you started but weren't able to complete? Well, in the process of finishing up that work, he put his life on the line and nearly died doing it. NIV 30 because he almost died for the work of Christ. He risked his life to make up for the help you yourselves could not give me.
