Paul’s instruction was emphatic, “See to it that no one misses (is falling away from) the grace of God.”
There was urgency in his spirit.
He was concerned that those under the newly established grace covenant (through Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection) were returning to systems of self-rightness as the basis of Christian living.
Such concerns were well-founded. The Hebrews were predisposed to the performance mentality through the laws of Moses. Maximising human effort/willpower to receive from God was normal.
But the finished work of the cross introduced a new normal.
Paul knew that better than any…
And He has said to me, and His declaration still stands, My grace is enough for you, for power is moment by moment coming to its full energy and complete operation in the sphere of weakness. – 2 Cor. 12:9 (Wuest NT)
