Paul explains why he is sending Epaphroditus to the Philippians instead of Timothy as they expected. In so doing he describes them as role models for the churches of the kind of humility that he has been talking about.

I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon,
so that I too may be cheered by news of you.
actionpurpose
For I have no one like him, who will be genuinely concerned for your welfare.
For they all seek their own interests,
not those of Jesus Christ.
negativepositive
But you know Timothy's proven worth,
how as a son with a father he has served with me in the gospel.

and I trust in the Lord that shortly I myself will come also.
series
I have thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, and your messenger and minister to my need,
for he has been longing for you all and has been distressed
because you heard that he was ill.
Indeed he was ill, near to death.
But God had mercy on him,
and not only on him but on me also,
progression
lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow.

I am the more eager to send him, therefore,
that you may rejoice at seeing him again,
and that I may be less anxious.
So receive him in the Lord with all joy,
and honor such men,
for he nearly died for the work of Christ,
risking his life
to complete what was lacking in your service to me.
