The Doctor: The Glory of God and the Souls of Men

On Romans 9:1-3:

[W]hat we have here in these two great and mighty men of God, Moses and the Apostle Paul, is such an intense concern for the glory of God and for the souls of men that the feel it to the extent, that they come nearest of all to that mind which was in Christ Jesus when he gave himself as an offering for sin that others might be saved.  It is difficult for us to understand this, is it not?  The famous old commentator Bengal said, ‘It is not easy to estimate the measure of love in a Moses and a Paul, for our reason does not grasp it, as a child cannot grasp the courage of warriors.’  These men so knew something about the burden of souls, that they were capable of using expressions that fill us with a sense of astonishment and amazement – expressions which have often led lesser minds to criticize them and to misunderstand them.  – D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Romans Vol. 9, p. 22
