2 Corinthians 6:1
We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that you receive not the grace of God in vain.
This is to be understood as —
I. THE GOSPEL OF HIS GRACE (Titus 2:11), or "the word of His grace" (Acts 20:32; Acts 14:3), termed the grace of God, because it proceeds from that grace (Luke 1:78, 79), displays it, and is the instrument whereby we receive it and its fruits.
II. REDEEMING GRACE.
III. ENLIGHTENING GRACE.
IV. JUSTIFYING GRACE.
V. REGENERATING AND RENEWING GRACE.
VI. STRENGTHENING AND QUALIFYING GRACE (2 Timothy 2:1).
VII. COMFORTING GRACE, which is given that we may be supported amidst all our trials; but in vain, if we are still cast down and decline from God: and that we may comfort others (2 Corinthians 1:3-6), but in vain, if this end be not answered.
