With William Plumer in Romans, Morning

Romans 1:13
NAU – I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that often I have planned to come to you (and have been prevented so far) so that I may obtain some fruit among you also, even as among the rest of the Gentiles.
KJV – Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.

“Insatiable is the holy desire of a right-minded man to do good and lead souls to Christ, v. 13. Already had Paul planted or visited and edified numerous and famous churches; but he would not rest till he could do something for Rome also. It is mentioned in the life of Rev. William Graham that when the great revival began in his church, he thought if some few precious youths were brought in, he would be satisfied. But when the Lord was pleased to bring them to hope in Christ, his desires increased indefinitely. Because insatiable, desires are not necessarily wicked.”
