So what does this mean for us?

So, if we see Romans in light of Relational Reciprocity?

1) Paul is culturally sensative
2) Raul is wise
3) Romans is about the Gospel
4) Romans is about relationships
5) Romans can teach us about missionary service (even wise support raising!)

As I said in the previous post, Paul is doing something that was culturally acceptable. Paul was interested in raising funds for a trip to Spain. Paul was an Apostle to the Gentile (his relationship to the Roman church). Paul is giving a great gift to the Romans by giving them the Gospel in light of their needs.
