  3. 8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, because your faith is being proclaimed throughout the whole world. 9 For God, whom I serve in my spirit in the preaching of the gospel of His Son, is my witness as to how unceasingly I remember you 10 always in my prayers; making request, if perhaps now at last by the will of God I may succeed in coming to you. 11 For I long to see you so that I may impart some spiritual gift to you, that you may be established; 12 that is, that I may be encouraged together with you while among you, each of us by the other’s faith, both yours and mine.

  4. 13 I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that often I have planned to come to you (and have been prevented thus far) so that I may obtain some fruit among you also, even as among the rest of the Gentiles. 14 I am a debtor both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to the wise and to the foolish. 15 Thus, for my part, I am eager to preach the gospel to you also who are in Rome. (Romans 1:8-15)

  5. The Heart of Paul (1:8-15) Central Point: • Paul expresses his longing to establish these believers in his gospel

  6. The Heart of Paul (1:8-15) 1. Paul’s Service • his life was a wholehearted service of worship to God • the gospel was the central thrust of all of his ministry

  7. The Heart of Paul (1:8-15) 2. Paul’s Prayer • Unceasing – “always in my prayers” • Personal – “remember you” • Specific – “I may come to you” • Conditional – “if perhaps by the will of God”

  8. The Heart of Paul (1:8-15) 3. Paul’s Desire • He longs to visit these believers in Rome in order to strengthen them in his gospel • to “share some spiritual gift with you” (v.11) • to “have some fruit among you” (v.13) • to “preach the gospel to you” (v.15)

  9. The Heart of Paul (1:8-15) • The Book of Romans is Paul’s spiritual gift to us to strengthen and establish us in our faith
