Romans 1:3 The Good News is about his Son. In his earthly life he was born into King David’s family line, 4 and he was shown to be[a] the Son of God when he was raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit.[b] He is Jesus Christ our Lord. 5 Through Christ, God has given us the privilege[c] and authority as apostles to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so that they will believe and obey him, bringing glory to his name.
I'm sensing a theme of verses I'm being drawn to!
8 Let me say first that I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith in him is being talked about all over the world.
Can you imagine having a faith that is being talked about all over the world?!
10 One of the things I always pray for is the opportunity, God willing, to come at last to see you.
The first part of this verse is what jumped out at me. Do I pray for opportunities? Opportunities to love, to share the gospel, to serve, to empathize, to help, to comfort, etc.
25 They traded the truth about God for a lie.
Our society calls evil good and good evil. And it because they have trade the truth about God for a lie. Why? Because they think the chains of sin are freedom.
I pray for my unbelieving friends and family, that God will open their eyes to the truth about God, and that they would recognize the lies for what they are.
