With William Plumer in Romans, Day 11 – Morning

Romans 1:5
NAS – …through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles for His name’s sake…
KJV – …By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:

“The whole scheme of the gospel supposes that Christ is glorified by the salvation of men, so that all the progress of the saving truth is for his name, i.e., to his honor, and therefore we are bound to receive that gospel ourselves, and make it known to others. Haldane: ‘Men are very unwilling to admit that God should have any end with respect to them greater than their happiness. But his own glory is everywhere in the Scripture represented as the chief end of man’s existence, and of the existence of all things.'” (Romans, 43)
