I long to strengthen you: Romans 1.11

“For I long to see you, so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you”.

Romans 1.11

Paul hoped to visit the Romans in order to, first, bless them by passing on miraculous gifts in their midst, since they apparently had never had an apostle among them.

The desire to be among the saints is prompted in the first place by the desire to bless others, not seek a blessing for oneself.
