Thankful Gospel Greetings

Noel Heikkinen

Colossians 4:7-18

When the Gospel takes root in someone’s life it changes them. At the end of Paul’s letter to the Colossian church, he points to several people who have lived out different aspects of grace. Do you have people like this in your life? Are you a grace-filled person? Pastor Noel Jesse Heikkinen concludes our series through Colossians by pointing out that God has given this ministry to each of us in the church; to leverage our gifts for the Gospel.

Tychicus, our dearly loved brother, faithful minister, and fellow servant in the Lord, will tell you all the news about me. I have sent him to you for this very purpose, so that you may know how we are and so that he may encourage your hearts.

Colossians 4:7-8



Dearly loved brother, faithful minister, fellow servant in the Lord, encourager of hearts.


He is coming with Onesimus, a faithful and dearly loved brother, who is one of you. They will tell you about everything here.

Colossians 4:9



Faithful and dearly loved brother.


Aristarchus, my fellow prisoner, sends you greetings, as does Mark, Barnabas’s cousin (concerning whom you have received instructions: if he comes to you, welcome him), and so does Jesus who is called Justus. These alone of the circumcised are my coworkers for the kingdom of God, and they have been a comfort to me.

Colossians 4:10-11


Aristarchus, Mark, and Justus

Jewish prisoners, coworkers, and comforters.


Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ Jesus, sends you greetings. He is always wrestling for you in his prayers, so that you can stand mature and fully assured in everything God wills. For I testify about him that he works hard for you, for those in Laodicea, and for those in Hierapolis.

Colossians 4:12-13



Servant, prayer warrior, hard worker.


Luke, the dearly loved physician, and Demas send you greetings.

Colossians 4:14


Dr. Luke

Dearly Loved.



Friend for now.


Give my greetings to the brothers and sisters in Laodicea, and to Nympha and the church in her home. After this letter has been read at your gathering, have it read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and see that you also read the letter from Laodicea.

Colossians 4:15-16



Sister Church.



The hostess.


And tell Archippus, “Pay attention to the ministry you have received in the Lord, so that you can accomplish it.”

Colossians 4:17



The guy who needed a nudge.


I, Paul, am writing this greeting with my own hand. Remember my chains. Grace be with you.

Colossians 4:18
