Paul wrote Romans from Cotinth. He was about to go to Jerusalem. He knew that this was God’s will, but he didn’t know what would happen to him. He wanted to teach the church in Rome about justification. God leads us in a certain direction to accomplish His will in our life as well as others. Paul was about finished with his missionary trips. Now he was about to enter captivity. He was going to be brought before kings and rulers. Th only way was in captivity. In the first century, no one would be accepted into another church unless the pastor would a letter and vouched for that person. Paul vouched for more than a dozen people and sent the letter with them. He prayed for the Roman church and his fellow workers. He was hoping to see them again. He was trusting God in all things. For I Crain salute thee, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
