Excerpt from Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans His natural character was ardent, energetic, uncompromising, and severe. How his extravagance and violence were subdued by the grace of God is abundantly evident from the moderation, mildness, tenderness, and conciliation manifested in all his epistles. Absorbed in the one object of glorifying Christ, he was ready to submit to any thing, and to yield any thing necessary for this purpose. He longer insisted that others should think and act just as he did so that they obeyed Christ, he was satisfied, and he willingly conformed to their prejudices and tole rated their errors, so far as the cause of truth and righteousness allowed. By his early education, by his miraculousconversion and inspiration, by his natural disposition, and by the abundant grace of God was this apos tle fitted for his work, and sustained under his multiplied and arduous labours.
