The Blessing of Faith and The Goal of Paul’s Ministry

We continue in our study of the introductory material for the book of Romans. Paul continues to explain his ministry and plans to come to Rome. The emphasis in this passage is faith. Paul is leading into the theme of the epistle, which is stated in 1:16-17, namely that the Gospel is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes. 
Our text is Romans 1:8-15.
We will consider these four points:
1. The blessing of faith.
2. The fellowship and growth of faith through Paul’s ministry.
3. The obligation Paul feels in his calling. 
4. The implications for us as believers.
