With William Plumer in Romans, Day 11 – Evening

Romans 1:6-7
NAS – …among whom you also are the called of Jesus Christ; 7 to all who are beloved of God in Rome, called as saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
KJV – …Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ: 7 To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

“If men are ever to know the saving power of Christ’s grace, it must be by a holy and effectual calling, vs. 6, 7. Something quite beyond a mere outward invitation or persuasion is necessary to move the dead soul. To some, such a doctrine is discouraging. To those taught from heaven, it gives all the encouragement they have, and all they need. If Ezekiel must prophesy over the dry bones, let him go at it in good earnest, for God is able to make them stand up a great army.” (Romans, 43)
