5 “through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles in behalf of His name, 6 among whom you also are the called of Jesus Christ; 7 to all who are beloved of God in Rome, called as saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
We often hear that obedience and faith are separate ideas: Obedience balances out faith. We also believe that obedience has to do with doing something for God. But, according to Paul, faith is obedience. Paul is clear throughout Romans: All people, Jew and Gentile, are chosen for the Gospel offer. However, this does not mean that all are saved (universalism). It means that all people are chosen to hear the Gospel. It’s up to individuals to obey it through faith.
The Gospel leads to an encounter with the grace and peace which flows to us from God the Father. This means that the Father has nothing but grace and peace for His children. So, we need not be afraid of Him.
