WELCOME STRANGER | Epaphroditus – Man for all Seasons | Philippians 2:4-5, Philippians 2:25-30, Philippians 4:18-19 | Ian Higginbotham

Ian Higginbotham continues our Welcome Stranger series by looking at Epaphroditus who can be found in Philippians 2:4-5, Philippians 2:25-30, Philippians 4:18-19.

A man of Pagan background with the goddess Aphrodite incorporated into his name. To the Philippians he was a reliable and trusted messenger to take their gifts to Paul. To Paul he was so much more – a brother, a co-worker, and a fellow soldier. A man of devotion,faithfulness and self-sacrifice, he put the needs of others above himself and so modelled Christ. Possibly one of the first missionaries taking care, provision and the gospel to the needy – a pattern for courage. One of those people whose very presence and faith makes people rejoice.
