Romans 1:10-13

Romans 1:10-13 — Making request, if by any means now at length I might have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you. For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established; that is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me. Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.

Prosperous = material prosperity

Will of God = gracious design

impart = sharing, as in handing on what God gave Paul

spiritual gift = again, the grace God gave Paul

establish = to lean on a support = faith, to stand fast, rooted, grounded

mutual faith — faith in another brings comfort

fruit — conversion of sinners, edification of saints

I would not have you ignorant — that Paul's ministry was to the Gentiles
