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 share a spiritual blessing with you that will help you grow strong in the Lord.
I'm eager to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours. In this way, each of us will be a blessing to the other.
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 good results, just as I have done among other Gentiles.
References for Romans 1:13
For I have a great sense of obligation to people in our culture and to people in other cultures, to the educated and uneducated alike.
References for Romans 1:14
So I am eager to come to you in Rome, too, to preach God's Good News.
