With William Plumer in Romans, Morning (Day 27)

Romans 1:16
NAS – For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
KJV –  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

“It is incontestable proof of the deep depravity of man that he should be ashamedof the most glorious things – the gospel and the Savior, v. 16. Could a greater perversion exist? Can any thing be more absurd than that men shall blush to own their greatest and most needful blessing? It is true the taunts of ungodly men are very bitter and very scornful; but they are wholly harmless, except as we yield to them. Yet many do yield to them, and will finally and awfully perish. Mark 8:38; Luke 9:26; compared with Matt. 10:33; Luke 12:9; 2 Tim. 1:8; 2:12.” (Romans, 59)
