The grace of God has a two-point agenda over your life- to keep you and give you an inheritance. To keep is present continuous.” To give ” is in the future. Paul said: I commit you to the word of God’s grace which is able to keep you and give you an inheritance. Go ask the jokers, the fake grace comedians where they got their twisted version from. Grace is not just in the past when you answered an altar call, it keeps you. If you don’t need to be kept then Paul must be a joker for saying the grace will keep us. But we know who the joker is- the fake grace advocates, junk grace pushers.
The grace is in your future and takes you to the future to give you an inheritance. That is the reward in heaven. When the servant multiplied the money given to them by the master, they got to rule over many cities. If in this world only we have hope, we are of all men most miserable. Therefore, grace must deliver us an inheritance to complete its job in our lives.
Paul said: I commit you to God and to the word of his grace. The Greek for word can mean concept. The right concept of grace is important for us to be kept and for our inheritance to be delivered to us. Hence the devil is trying to pollute the water of grace. But he is a joker.
