I do not want you to be unaware, brothers, 1 that x I have often intended to come to you
Paul wants them to know that he deeply desires to see them and be with them. That they may encourage one another and build one another up.(11-12)
(but y thus far have been prevented),
It has been circumstances that have not allowed him to come. This aside reinforces the truth of his desire to see them. If it were his choice, he would have come to them many time before
concessive
in order that I may reap some z harvest among you
Paul wants to come for the to reap a harvest...that is, he longs to see the Gospel bear fruit in Rome
as well as among the rest of the Gentiles.
He longs not only for Rome, but that from Rome, all the Gentiles may hear the Gospel and believe unto salvation. Paul seems to have a vision that just as Rome expanded through the world, through its expanse, the Gospel might go everywhere.

actionpurpose
a I am under obligation both to Greeks and to b barbarians, 1 both to the wise and to the foolish.
Paul has an obligation to all people, regardless of knowledge, education, culture, race, mental capacity, etc. This obligation to all people drives Him. See verses 1-7, this obligation is born out of gratitude for grace and obedience to command as one who was sent out and also out of hope in God's power to bring a harvest of salvation.
So I am eager to preach the gospel to you also who are in Rome.
He is, therefore, eager to preach to those in Rome
For d I am not ashamed of the gospel,
Paul is eager because he is not ashamed of God's gospel. (is this from where our fear flows? Are we ashamed of the gospel?)
for it is e the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew f first and also to g the Greek.
Paul is not ashamed because of the Gospel's great power! It is the power of God for salvation. It is the means of salvation
For in it h the righteousness of God is revealed i from faith for faith, 1
It is powerful because it works God's righteousness on us through faith in His work. It is trusting him rather than us for righteousness.It does not reveal our righteousness, but His.
j as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” 2
this is not something new, post Christ. It is the deeper reality expressed and revealed fully in Christ, BUT all along, the righteous shall live by faith. Now we know how faith is connected to imputed righteousness.
