With William Plumer in Romans, Day 2 – Morning

Romans 1:1
NAS – Paul, a bond-servant of Christ Jesus, called as an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God…
KJV – Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God…

“Approved ministers of the Gospel are Christ’s servants in the best senses, v. 1. They act and suffer from a pure regard to the honor of their Master. They think it a small matter whether they are sick or well, applauded or despised, provided he is duly honored. They hope to glorify him even in reproaches, and in the fiery furnace. They dare not preach themselves but Christ Jesus the Lord, nor deliver any message but that which they have received from him. They expect to give account to him. Nor do they serve and suffer for him grudgingly. They glory in tribulations for his sake and in his cause. They think it honor enough to serve in his house. They know they serve a good Master. Their reward is sure.” (Romans, 39)
