With William Plumer in Romans, Day 28

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.

Morning

“There is no limit to the power and adaptation of the gospel to men, v. 16. It suits the Jew; it suits the Greek; it meets the wants of the wise and of the unwise. It suits us poor sinners of the Gentiles. Compare Romans 10:11, 12. It brings to men all they need.” (Romans, 60)

Evening

“The doctrine of faith is a great doctrine, which it behooves us so to understand as to make no fatal mistakes, vs. 8, 16, 17. The wicked may pour out their most cruel venom against it; but whether men shall be saved will in the last day turn, as God says it will, upon the fact, whether they had genuine living faith in the Redeemer. Nor can God more richly bless us in this life, than by granting us, not fewer sorrows, not lighter trials, but stronger faith.” (Romans, 60)
