Obedience to the faith...

Posted: May 17, 2013

Romans 1:5 Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name, 6 among whom you also are the called of Jesus Christ...

Romans 16:24-25, "25 Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began 26 but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith— 27 to God, alone wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen."

The Book of Romans begins and ends with an exhortation for "obedience to the faith." How is it that so many would try to make an arguement that the chapters in between these teach that obedience is "law" "legalism" "works" ? Surely if the Book begins and ends with obedience its contents are exhorting us to the same.
