V5 through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among the nations
All believers who aren’t Jewish, mainly me, should love this verse. This small verse at the beginning of Romans should be one of our favorite verses ever. Why? This is the verse where Paul tells of his desire, his calling, his work if you will to bring the saving gospel to the gentiles. The “all the nations” part of this verse shows us that he was dedicated to all people not just his kinsmen the Jews. Because Paul was faithful, because God desired all men to hear and know Him I can sit here today read His word and experience His saving power.
