With William Plumer in Romans, Morning

Romans 1:8
NAS – First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, because your faith is being proclaimed throughout the whole world.
KJV –  First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.

“It is a blessed attainment to be able in all boldness and humility to claim covenant relations with Jehovah, and to say my God, v. 8. He is the God of particular saints. He is the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, Matt. 22:32; the God of Elijah, 2 Kings 2:14; the God of Daniel, Daniel 6:26; and he is frequently called the God of Israel. Often do invidual saints call him my God, and bodies of believers, our God. Let each man pray that his appropriating faith may be so strengthened, that he may be able to say, my Lord and my God.” (Romans, 56)
