3,000 Miles for the Church (Romans 15:22-33)

While Paul’s travel plans might be easy to understand on the surface, there’s much we can learn about his love for the church. His travel plans reveal what Paul desired to see in the churches: the blessing of refreshment, fellowship, and prayer. In this passage, pastor Matt explains that the church is where the blessing of Christ is known and where the glory of God is made known. This happens as the saints experience the peace of God, encourage one another in the faith, and contend together for the sake of the gospel.
