Paul ends the book with a doxology (a statement of praise to God). In this doxology, Paul speaks of the blessings of the gospel he has just expounded and applied throughout the book. He ends with another reference to the obedience of faith. This is a fitting conclusion to a book that, more than any other, is devoted to the full explanation of the gospel. Paul tells us two things in this passage:
- The blessing of the gospel.
- The purpose and goal of it.
