Bible: Romans 1:8-15

Paul’s Desire to Visit Rome

1:8 First of all, 1  I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed throughout the whole world. 1:9 For God, whom I serve in my spirit by preaching the gospel 2  of his Son, is my witness that 3  I continually remember you 1:10 and I always ask 4  in my prayers, if perhaps now at last I may succeed in visiting you according to the will of God. 5  1:11 For I long to see you, so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift 6  to strengthen you, 1:12 that is, that we may be mutually comforted by one another’s faith, 7  both yours and mine. 1:13 I do not want you to be unaware, 8  brothers and sisters, 9  that I often intended to come to you (and was prevented until now), so that I may have some fruit even among you, just as I already have among the rest of the Gentiles. 10  1:14 I am a debtor 11  both to the Greeks and to the barbarians, both to the wise and to the foolish. 1:15 Thus I am eager 12  also to preach the gospel to you who are in Rome. 13
