Romans 1:4-14 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
4 and who through the Spirita of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of Godb1 by his resurrection from the dead:2 Jesus Christ our Lord.3 5 Through him and for his name's sake, we received grace4 and apostleship to call people from among all the Gentiles5 to the obedience that comes from faith.6 6 And you also are among those who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.7 7 To all in Rome who are loved by God8 and called to be saints:9 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.10

Paul's Longing to Visit Rome

8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you,11 because your faith is being reported all over the world.12 9 God, whom I serve13 with my whole heart in preaching the gospel of his Son, is my witness14 how constantly I remember you 10 in my prayers at all times;15 and I pray that now at last by God's will16 the way may be opened for me to come to you.17 11 I long to see you18 so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift19 to make you strong-- 12 that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other's faith. 13 I do not want you to be unaware,20 brothers,21 that I planned many times to come to you (but have been prevented from doing so until now)22 in order that I might have a harvest among you, just as I have had among the other Gentiles. 14 I am obligated23 both to Greeks and non-Greeks, both to the wise and the foolish.
