    Ray, The near death of Paul's friend in this chapter verse 30 should be a lesson that even in the vineyard of working for God, we need to find time to rest. Even God rested on the 7th day. He is a God of principle. If we go against his principle of rest we shall fall sick and die. Don't take his mercy for granted. Not all will be fortunate like Paul friend in this chapter.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Jesus, I adore you. Wherefore God has highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    Verse 3: We are urged to consider others superior to ourselves and this will help us to develop humility. We should strive to find the good in everyone.

    I'm in love with this on chapter it's so amazing and it teaches me so much I have been wondering and God finally spoke to me I was happy that he taught me a lesson every since my mother has died I have lost my mind but someone spoke to me in a stern voice and said Allison you have won the victory in me i love my Jesus.

    Hello Ray; It doesn't say anywhere, that Paul couldn't heal his friend, and certainly not that the Holy Spirit in him was "fading" or he couldn't speak in tongues any more. Epaphroditus was exhausted from working himself out! By answer to PRAYERS God raised him back up, and he recovered health. There's too many that don't carry their weight in the Lord's work! So others have unfairly heavy loads.
  • Ray321
    Now Apostle Paul couldn't heal with the gift of the Holy Ghost because Epaphroditus was very sick to death. Paul had the Holy Spirit inside him, but the gift of Holy Ghost must of faded away. Epaphroditus may have died with out getting heal. Food for thought and very interesting to know why Paul couldn't heal or speak in tongues later in his ministry. His epistles speak for its self.
