Under Gods Command

Romans 1:8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is being reported all over the world. 

Paul uses the phrase “I thank my God through Jesus Christ” to emphasize the point that Christ is the one and only mediator between God and humans.  Through Christ, God sends his love and forgiveness to us; through Christ, we send our thanks to God.  (1 Timothy 2:5)

The Roman Christians, at the Western world’s political power center, were highly visible.  Fortunately, their reputation was excellent; their strong faith was making itself known around the world.
