Welcome to today’s message from Dr Annang, in which he continues his study of Romans with a timely word for us from the Lord. (The message is in two parts, due to technical issues during the recording.)
Before that are two video songs from Helen Shapiro’s excellent album What Wondrous Love is This. The first is a celebration of the Lord’s return, I’m Gonna Wait on the Lord, the second is the reflective and worshipful title track, What Wondrous Love is This.
Here is Dr Annang’s continuing study in Romans 1:
Romans 1: 8-15
First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. 9 For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of His Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers, 10 making request if, by some means, now at last I may find a way in the will of God to come to you. 11 For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be established— 12 that is, that I may be encouraged together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.
13 Now I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that I often planned to come to you (but was hindered until now), that I might have some fruit among you also, just as among the other Gentiles. 14 I am a debtor both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to wise and to unwise. 15 So, as much as is in me, I am ready to preach the gospel to you who are in Rome also.
