In v. 14, Paul reaffirms his confidence in God's supernatural work in the church at Rome. He is persuaded that they are full of goodness, seeing as they are filled with knowledge that results in or expresses itself in appropriate admonishing of one another. Nevertheless, Paul wrote to do a bit of apostolic admonishing and wrote boldy as a reminder to them (v. 15). This boldless is not a sign of his lack of confidence in the church or his dissatisfaction with them (v. 14); rather, it is an expression of God's grace given to Paul for the purpose of ministering the gospel among the nations (v. 16). Paul uses poignant priestly language in v. 16 to describe his God-ordained mission of mediating the gospel to the nations/Gentiles, and his goal is to present an acceptable Gentile offering to God that is sanctified or consecrated by the Holy Spirit. Paul's argument advances in v. 17f as he draws a conclusion from his calling by grace in vv. 15-16. Paul's boast is exclusively in what God in Christ has worked through him (vv. 17-18), with the result that he "fulfilled" the gospel of Christ from Jerusalem to Illyricum (v. 19). In vv. 20-21 Paul explains that he aimed to do this very thing, preaching where Christ was not named, just as Isaiah 52:15 proclaimed that those who had not heard would see and understand the good news.
