    CHAPTER ONE

    Apostolic Introduction. Verses 1-7.

    Personal Greetings, and Expressions of Desire to See and to Preach to Saints in Rome. Verses

    8-15.

    Great Theme of the Epistle: The Gospel the Power of God,Because of the

    By-Faith-Righteousness Revealed Therein. Verses 16-17.

    The Worlds Danger: Gods Wrath Revealed Against Human Sin. Verses 18-20.

    The awful Course of Mans Sin, and Mans Present State, Related and Described. Verses

    21-32.

    1 Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, a called apostle,

    separated unto Gods good news, 2 which He before

    promised through His prophets in (the) holy Scriptures, 3

    concerning His Son: who was born of Davids seed

    according to the flesh, 4 who was declared the Son of God

    with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by

    resurrection of the dead,Jesus Christ our Lord, 5 through

    whom we received grace and apostleship, for obedience of

    faith among all the nations for His names sake; 6 among

    whom are ye also,called as Jesus Christs: 7 to all thosewho are in Rome beloved of God, called as saints: Grace to

    you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus

    Christ.

    Verse 1: PAULWe see Pauls name standing alone hereno Silas, Timothy or other brother

    with him. For Paul is himself Christs apostle unto the Gentiles, the declarer, as here in Romans,

    of the gospel for this dispensation. Also, in revealing the heavenly character, calling, and destiny

    of the Church as the Body and Bride of Christ, and as Gods House, as in Ephesians, Paul stands

    alone. When essential doctrines and directions are being laid down, no one is associated with the

    apostle in the authority given to him,

    We dare not glory in a man, not even in Paul, whose life and ministry are by far the most

    remarkable of those of any human being.1 Yet our Lord Jesus said: He that receiveth whomsoever

    1 Paul, being really the least, is the greatest of men! The Lord Jesus said, Among those born of women there hath not arisen a

    greater than John the Baptist. But He added immediately, Yet he that is lesserin the Kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

    I send receiveth Me; and he that receiveth Me receiveth him that sent Me (John 13:20). And Paul

    was especially sentto us Gentiles. At the first council of the Church, recorded in Acts 15, They

    who were of repute (in the church in Jerusalem), said Paul, saw that I had been intrusted with

    the gospel of the uncircumcision, even as Peter with the gospel of the circumcision ( Gal. 2:7).

    Throughout church history, to depart from Paul has been heresy. To receive Pauls gospel and

    hold it fast, is salvation,By which (gospel) ye are saved, if ye hold fast the very word I preached

    unto you (I Cor. 15:1, 2 margin),

    A bondservant of Jesus ChristPaul was bondservantbefore he was apostle. Saul of Tarsus

    first words, as he lay in the dust in the Damascus road, blinded by the glory of Christs presence,

    were, Who art thou, Lord? And when there came the voice, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou

    persecutest, his next words were, What shall I do, Lord?instant, utter surrender! It is deeply

    instructive to mark that although our Lord said, No longer do I call you bondservants, but friends;

    yet, successively, Paul, James, Peter, Jude and John (Re 1:1), name themselves bondservants (Greek;

    douloi),and that with great delight! It is the service of perfect freedomdeepest of all devotions,

    that of realized redemption and perfected love.2

    (Matthew 11:11). Paul names himself less than the leastof all saints, speaking in the Spirit. When John the Baptist speaks of

    the place he had, it was, as the friendof the Bridegroom; but Paul, of his work, as that ofespousing and presenting the saints

    as a chaste virgin to Christ! We cannot conceive of a higher honor, than that given to this very least of Christs bondservants,--

    to present His Church to Him; as we believe it will be given Paul to do, at the Marriage of the Lamb! (Re 19:6-9; II Cor. 11:2)

    It would be well also here, regarding Paul, to apply Mk 10:43,44: Whosoever would become great among you, shall be

    your minister. The Greek word for minister here is the one we translate elsewhere deacon (diakonos); but verse 44 goes

    further and deeper: And whosoever would be first among you, shall be servant of all. Here the Greek word is t
