8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, because your faith is being proclaimed throughout the whole world. 9 For God, whom I serve in my spirit in the preaching of the gospel of His Son, is my witness as to how unceasingly I make mention of you,
Most often people will complain about the government that rules them, & same guess most of the people of Israel & their hatred for the Roman Empire. But the Bible tells us in (Romans 13:1) government authorities are established by God. Scripture speaks how God used Augustus Caesar, to have a census of all the earth, & so then Joseph took Mary to Bethlehem, & just in time to fulfill prophecy, Jesus was born in the city of David.
The emperor Augustus established Rome’s first postal service to communicate with his governors & military officials. Augustus, & those who succeeded him built about 47,000 miles of roads & many stations , that employees, that help the Roman mail carriers. The apostle Paul ,who was a Roman citizen, took advantage of this Roman Postal Service, he knew of to deliver the gospel letters to the 13 letters to the churches . Dear brothers & sisters, we should always believe God is always in control. Maybe all the roads do lead to Rome, but also delivered the good new. God bless you all, the Lord loves you & so do I. by Sam H.
