Wanting to see the brethren
Paul mentioned the Roman brethren frequently in his prayers, saying in particular,
“making request if, by some means, now at last I may find a way in the will of God to come to you” (Rom 1:10).
So many Christians have no desire to be with their fellow-Christians, but the one from whom we get so much teaching on what it means to be a Christian, prayed to God relentlessly to see the brethren, but Paul also realized that everything was in God’s will.
Does Romans 1:10 picture your desire to be with the church? If not, why not?
