With William Plumer in Romans, Evening

Romans 1:9
NAS – For God, whom I serve in my spirit in the preaching of the gospel of His Son, is my witness as to how unceasingly I make mention of you…
KJV – For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers…

“Then do we serve God aright, when we serve him in our hearts, and in the way pointed out by the gospel of his Son, v. 9. Compare Phil. 3:3. Doddridge: ‘Happy is the church of Christ, when its ministers are thus conscious of the excellency of the gospel, and thus earnestly desirous, in the midst of reproach, persecution and danger, to extend its triumphs.’ In Christ’s people and ministers there is no substitute for godly sincerity. Lacking that, men serve themselves, not the Lord.” (Romans, 57)
