One of the things I always pray for is the opportunity, God willing, to come at last to see you.
For I long to visit you so I can bring you some spiritual gift that will help you grow strong in the Lord.
When we get together, I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours.
I want you to know, dear brothers and sisters, that I planned many times to visit you, but I was prevented until now. I want to work among you and see spiritual fruit, just as I have seen among other Gentiles.
References for Romans 1:13
For I have a great sense of obligation to people in both the civilized world and the rest of the world, to the educated and uneducated alike.
References for Romans 1:14
So I am eager to come to you in Rome, too, to preach the Good News.
