Galatians 1:2, and all the brothers who are with me, To the Churches at Galatia:
As Paul opens his letter to the Galatians, he makes the stance that he isn’t alone in his endeavors. He is accompanied by fellow brothers in the gospel; Gaius, Aristarchus are at Ephesus, Sopater, Secundus, Timotheus, Tychicus, Trophimus, are joining him. While not all of his companions are joint authors in this letter, they do join him in this salutation that Paul pens at the opening of his letter. As Paul gets ready to write this letter, note the last part of verse 2, to all the Churches. Paul isn’t just addressing a single church in his letter, but to multiple churches unnamed churches in Galatia. Know this; as Paul expresses in these opening verses, we are never alone in our walk. We should seek companions to take this journey with. Find those with like minds and hearts and walk in Christ together. Someone who can pick you up and hold you accountable, and you do the same for them. Someone you can do life with.
