1. Paul's fellow prisoner - Aristarchus never argued with the prison warden that he's just a traveling companion but went silently to prison together with other apostles.

Colossians 4:10 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Aristarchus, who is in prison with me, sends you his greetings, and so does Mark, Barnabas’s cousin. As you were instructed before, make Mark welcome if he comes your way.

2. Paul's traveling companion

Acts 19:29 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Soon the whole city was filled with confusion. Everyone rushed to the amphitheater, dragging along Gaius and Aristarchus, who were Paul’s traveling companions from Macedonia.

B. We are GOD's fellow worker

Whether Paul or Apollos, together with them, we are GOD's workers, fellow workers on GOD's building. We need to be good workers working for the LORD JESUS CHRIST not to men. The Word of GOD is useful to train and teach us as co-worker with GOD.

1 Corinthians 3:9 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

For we are both God’s workers. And you are God’s field. You are God’s building.

2 Timothy 2:15 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.
