Romans 15 begins by admonishing Christians to bear one another's burdens. This give hope to a dying world. How? Our burdens become lighter when someone is helping us carry it! I love vs 15: "Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."

Finally, note Paul's goal: Spain. It was the farthest known western outpost of the world. Paul took seriously taking the Gospel to the uttermost ends of the earth. He was also very ambitious...for Christ. Ambition isn't wrong if it's ambition for Jesus' glory!

Hope you all have an ambitious, sun-soaked week-end.
