Romans 15: Paul's Missionary Prayer Letter

I preached Sunday on Romans 15:20-33 titling the message Paul's Missionary Prayer Letter.  Indeed, this part of the letter reads like a missionary report including ministry updates, itinerary notes, and prayer requests.  I gleaned four main points from the text:

1.  The importance of taking of the gospel to those places where Christ has not been named (vv. 20-22);
2.  The importance of supporting and encouraging missionary efforts (vv. 23-24);
3.  The importance of mercy ministry among the saints (vv. 25-29);
4.  The importance of prayer for the missionary advancement of the gospel (vv. 30-33).
