Study Passage: Romans 1:8-12
First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed in all the world. For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I mention you always in my prayers, asking that somehow by God’s will I may now at last succeed in coming to you. For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you — that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.
- What does today’s passage reveal about Paul’s relationship with the believers he’s writing to?
- How could you get more in touch with needs of fellow believers to pray more specifically for them?
- How can you use your spiritual gifts to encourage and strengthen others in your church and/or small group?
Spend Time in Prayer: Pray for Christians you know who are struggling right now, asking God to show you how to best encourage them in the days ahead.
