This post will complete Romans 15… Once again this study is written to coincide with the NASB translation.

This is another important phrase in the Scriptures. The phrase “for this reason” is just like saying “therefore” or “this is why”. Remember when we see these phrases we need to look at what comes before the phrase to find what the reason is or what the therefore is there for.

THINK ABOUT IT…
As much as Paul wanted to visit the church in Rome he would not go unless God had sent him. He knew that he had to obey God.
Paul also knew that even if he could not come to Rome yet, he could pray for them and they could pray for him.
Paul was a missionary. Do you know any missionaries that you can pray for?
Do you know of any places left on the earth that have not heard the gospel and learned about Jesus?
Go this website http://www.unreached.org/ and learn about places where the gospel has not been preached and pray that God would send someone like Paul to tell them about Jesus.
That’s enough for today. Tomorrow we will finish our study in the book of Romans! I am so excited that you are still here learning and growing in God.
