Brother, Companion, Fellow Soldier

Philip. 2:25-30 (KJV)

Yet I supposed it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, and companion in labour, and fellow soldier, but your messenger, and he that ministered to my wants. [26] For he longed after you all, and was full of heaviness, because that ye had heard that he had been sick. [27] For indeed he was sick nigh unto death: but God had mercy on him; and not on him only, but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow. [28] I sent him therefore the more carefully, that, when ye see him again, ye may rejoice, and that I may be the less sorrowful. [29] Receive him therefore in the Lord with all gladness; and hold such in reputation: [30] Because for the work of Christ he was nigh unto death, not regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me.

What an endorsement! 

Do you have someone in your life that is so valuable to you that you would plead for mercy before God for their restoration to health?

 More importantly, is there anyone that would plead for mercy before God for your restoration to health because you are that invaluable to their lives?

Am I that kind of friend to someone?
Am I that kind of wife to my husband?
Am I that kind of mother to my children?
Am I that kind of neighbor to my neighborhood?
