With William Plumer in Romans, Day 3 – 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…

“It is no small grace in God to send us his servants; and therefore when we find such duly called of God, we ought gravely to consider our relation to them, and theirs to us. The people of God owe a solemn duty to God’s ministers, to hear the word of God which they preach, candidly to compare their discourses with Scripture, and heartily to receive and practice all the truth, which they deliver. Mal. 2:7; Acts 17:11; Ezek. 33:32. The people owe to Christ’s servants high esteem, temporal support, hearty prayer for their success, and obedience to them in the Lord. I Thess. 5:13; Gal. 6:6; II Thess. 3:1; Heb. 13:7.” (Romans, 39-40)
