Paul valued and appreciated fellowship and friendship, and he relied on others in the fulfillment of his ministry. Looking at Paul’s three requests at the close of his letter to Titus, Alistair Begg notes that the apostle emphasized the importance of people to him both personally and in his work. This emphasis was founded in the truths that all Christians are individually important to God as members of His family and that God desires us to bear good fruit in service toward others.
12When I send Artemas or Tychicus to you, do your best to come to me at Nicopolis, for I have decided to spend the winter there. 13Do your best to speed Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their way; see that they lack nothing. 14And let our people learn to devote themselves to good works, so as to help cases of urgent need, and not be unfruitful.
15All who are with me send greetings to you. Greet those who love us in the faith.
Grace be with you all.
