Tryphena and Tryphosa - Two holy women, who it seems were assistants to the apostle in his work, probably by exhorting, visiting the sick, etc. Persis was another woman, who it seems excelled the preceding; for, of her it is said, she labored much in the Lord. We learn from this, that Christian women, as well as men, labored in the ministry of the word. In those times of simplicity all persons, whether men or women, who had received the knowledge of the truth, believed it to be their duty to propagate it to the uttermost of their power.

There is, however, much more than this implied in the Christian ministry, of which men only, and men called of God, are capable.

A few rivers run into the sea, but a larger number run into other rivers. We cannot all be pioneers, but we can all be helpers, and no man is fitted to go in the front until he has learned well how to go second. A spirit of self-importance is fatal to all work for Christ. The biggest enemy of true spiritual power is spiritual self-consciousness. Joshua must die before …

Whether it is Lawful for a Bishop to have Property of his Own?
And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?
Greet Herodion, my fellow Jew. Greet those in the household of Narcissus who are in the Lord.
Greet Rufus, chosen in the Lord, and his mother, who has been a mother to me, too.
1 Thessalonians 5:12
Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you.
