True Saints fellowship one another—Paul recounts his diligence in preaching the gospel—The gifts of the Spirit are poured out upon the Gentiles.
3 For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The areproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.
6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the aFather of our Lord Jesus Christ.
7 Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.
10 And again he saith, Rejoice, ye aGentiles, with his people.
11 And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people.
17 I have therefore whereof I may aglory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God.
18 For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,
20 Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man’s afoundation:
21 But as it is written, To whom he was not aspoken of, they shall see: and they that have not heard shall understand.
22 For which cause also I have been much ahindered from coming to you.
23 But now having no more aplace in these parts, and having a great desire these many years to come unto you;
24 Whensoever I take my journey into Spain, I will come to you: for I trust to see you in my journey, and to be brought on my way thitherward by you, if first I be somewhat filled with your company.
25 But now I go unto Jerusalem to minister unto the saints.
26 For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain acontribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem.
28 When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this afruit, I will come by you into Spain.
29 And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the afulness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ.
30 Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;
31 That I may be delivered from them that ado not believe in Judæa; and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of the saints;
32 That I may come unto you with joy by the will of God, and may with you be arefreshed.
33 Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.
