"We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain." - 2 Corinthians 6:1
"But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me." - 1 Corinthians 15:10
The grace of God brings eternal salvation (Titus 2:11). Eternal salvation cannot be lost, hence the word "eternal". It is a sovereign act of Divine power. However, you can receive this grace "in vain." How so? By living a life guided by the flesh after being born again.
This saving grace bestowed upon the Apostle Paul was not in vain because he LABORED for Christ. God saved you because He loves you. At the same time, He changed you so you can serve Him! Your former master, sin, has been destroyed. Why serve a dead master? Serve Christ!
