6:1 We then not only beseech, but as fellow - labourers with you, who are working out your own salvation, do also exhort you, not to receive the grace of God - Which we have been now describing. In vain - We receive it by faith; and not in vain, if we add to this, persevering holiness.

2Co 6:1 The Apostolic Ministry SUMMARY OF II CORINTHIANS 6: An Exhortation to Believers. The Blameless Ministry of Paul and His Fellow-Workers. Their Endurance of Trials. Their Unselfish Self-Denial. An Appeal for Greater Love. The Intimate Association with Unbelievers Forbidden. Saints the Temple of God. We then. Paul and Timothy especially, and other ministers associated with them (2Co 1:1). [As] workers together [with him]. Not only fellow-laborers, but workers with Christ. See 2Co 5:17-21. That ye receive not the grace of God in vain. The "grace (favor) of God" meant is the gospel, "the ministry of reconciliation" (2Co 5:18). To receive it "in vain" would be to receive it and then fall away. Compare 1Co 15:2.

Don't be so quick trying to work on others salvation. Work out your own salvation with fear and trimbling, And receving it by having faith as size of a mustard seed, That you will not labourer in vain, And we have been set aside,so we must live holiness before good.
