When God worked to save man, He put everything into it. Notice the elements that Paul mentions in the following text, even so you know that not everything is mentioned,

Nevertheless, brethren, I have written more boldly to you on some points, as reminding you, because of the grace given to me by God, that I might be a minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering of the Gentiles might be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit (Romans 15.15–16). 

God gave Paul grace, enabling him to function as a minister of Jesus Christ as Paul preached to the Gentiles, giving them the good news of God. The good news being that their offering might be acceptable, because the Holy Spirit sanctifies the Gentiles.

Do not take your salvation lightly, because the God of heaven does not.
