Romans 15 – The End

Paul ends his letter with a repeated wish for their prayers for him as he heads to Jerusalem and his expectation that he will one day come personally to Rome, on his way to minister in Spain. We read back in Acts that his visit to Rome was fulfilled but from a different context.

As for his ending message…it contains this reiteration of doing all for the Glory of God.
