"I also have been much hindered from coming to you."
Text: Romans 15:22
HINDRANCES IN THE MINISTRY
Paul had a great ministry! His commitment to minister for the Lord saw him experienced many difficulties! Paul had wanted to visit Rome but was somehow prevented from doing so.
“For this reason I also have been much hindered from coming to you.”
What were some of the obstacles that hindered his movements? Paul’s letter to the Corinthians underscores these problems that prevented him from having a greater sense of freedom of ministry. The following problems may be highlighted (Cf. 2 Corinthians 11:23-28). These give us a better understanding of what Paul meant when he wrote about hindrances in the ministry.
