|I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith."|
When the apostle Paul stated that the gospel IS the power of God for salvation, he is saying that when the gospel is known to people, God's righteousness is revealed. This is not an act of convincing; it's an act of revelation. When we do our part, God will do His part. That kind of trust can hold us from first to last. It gives us an opportunity to live by faith in God and watch His promises work!
