Week 6, Saturday Ephesians

Ephesians 6:21-24 – The Top Priorities of Our Lives

By Pastor Paul Georgulis

21 To bring you up to date, Tychicus will give you a full report about what I am doing and how I am getting along. He is a beloved brother and faithful helper in the Lord’s work. 22 I have sent him to you for this very purpose—to let you know how we are doing and to encourage you. 23 Peace be with you, dear brothers and sisters, and may God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you love with faithfulness. 24 May God’s grace be eternally upon all who love our Lord Jesus Christ.” – Ephesians 6:21-24 (New Living Translation)

While I would love to provide a thorough explanation of who Tychicus was, I will simply say that he was one of the unsung heroes of the faith who made a big impact for the cause of Christ. I will also encourage you to research him for yourself, so as to see the depth of relationship he had with the Apostle Paul.

The reason Paul sent Tychicus to give a report on what he was doing and how he was, was because he was concerned that his brothers and sisters in Christ were worried about him. After all, he was in jail. But Paul had the peace of God, knew He was exactly where God wanted Him to be, and was continuing to spread the message of Jesus – even from behind bars.

Paul wanted to encourage these Ephesian believers, and to provide for them a blessing of peace, love, faithfulness, and grace. These were Paul’s final thoughts. I believe they are for us today, too. May peace, love, faith, and grace by the top priorities in our lives, and may they pour out onto the people we love.


God, grant us your peace, your love, and a greater faith. Most importantly, Lord, we ask that you continue to pour out your glorious grace upon us. Again, we don’t deserve it, but oh do we want and need it. Thank you!

In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen!
