Romans 1:8 (NKJV)
First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.
What did Paul thank God for in relation to the Romans? It was their faith. Their daily walk with Christ. They had a reputation of a true faith-walking church. In addition to their beautiful buildings, the preaching, their status in the community, their outstanding music, how many churches today are known for their faith. People say, those people truly walk with God?
