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.

“We are specially bound to give thanks to God through Jesus Christ for grace manifested to others in saving their souls, and granting them large measures of strength and courage, v. 8. Our Lord gives two reasons for joy in abundant fruitfulness – 1. It glorifies God; 2. It establishes discipleship. John 15:8. Elsewhere our apostle expresses like gratitude for similar blessings bestowed on other churches. Philippians 1:3-5; Colossians 1:3-6; I Thessalonians 1:2, 3; II Thessalonians 1:3.” (Romans, 56)
