With William Plumer in Romans, Day 12 – 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.

“It far more than compensates the saints for all the ill will and ill treatment they receive from men that they are beloved of God, v. 7. God loved them with compassion and good will even when they were enemies by wicked works. ‘It is the greatest love that God can show to man, being everlasting love, which originates with himself.’ It is because God thus loves his people that he brings them to a saving knowledge of himself. Jer. 31:3″ (Romans, 43-44)
