Why would His labor be in vain if there was no possibility of Satan tempting Christians, causing them to fall and be lost?  Surely Paul understood the grace of God and its limitations to those who refuse to obey the gospel, for he used the word 110 of the 156 times the Greek: charis (NT:5485) (grace) is found in the New Testament.

It is true that grace cannot be withheld from man because of demerit, lessened by demerit, or be mixed with the law of works; but this does not prove that there are no conditions men must meet in order to get the benefits of grace.  Not one scripture teaches unconditional grace, or that God gives grace to men who disobey the gospel.  If so, then God is under obligation to save all, even sinners who disobey if He saves even one (Romans 2:11).  God is under obligation to saints only when they walk in the light and remain true to the gospel (1 John 1:7).  He is not under obligation to sinners until they come to full obedience of the gospel. Grace teaches men to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts and to live soberly, righteously, and godly here and now (Titus 2:11-12).  If people do not obey its teaching, grace can go no further.  Anyone may:
  1. Receive grace in vain (2 Cor. 6:1).
  2. Frustrate it in his life (Galatians 2:21).
  3. Fall from it (Galatians 1:6-8Galatians 5:4).
  4. Fail of the grace of God (Hebrews 12:15).
  5. Turn it into lasciviousness (Jude 1:4).
  6. Sin in spite of it (Romans 6:1).
  7. Continue or discontinue in it (Acts 13:43).
  8. Minister it to others (1 Peter 4:10).
  9. Grow or not grow in it (2 Peter 3:18).
  10. Receive or reject it (John 3:16Rev. 22:17Hebrews 12:15James 4:6).
