I am going to Jerusalem (Rom 15:25)

“At present,

However,

I am going to Jerusalem

In a ministry

To the saints.”

νυνὶ δὲ πορεύομαι εἰς Ἱερουσαλὴμ διακονῶν τοῖς ἁγίοις.

However, at present (νυνὶ), he was going to travel (δὲ πορεύομαι) to Jerusalem (εἰς Ἱερουσαλὴμ) in a ministry (διακονῶν) to the saints there (τοῖς ἁγίοις).  Paul was clear that his current obligation was to go to Jerusalem to minister to the Christian saints there.  At Jerusalem, according to Acts, chapters 21-23, Paul did not receive a good reception.  In fact, he was arrested and almost killed.  Have you ever been to Jerusalem?
