If you are not vigilant in protecting Grace, you can easily have its value depreciated under the assaults of gainsayers and criticizers. The Apostle Paul speaks about God's gift of Grace being "super-abundant", or "hyper-super-abundant" (Romans 5:17, 20). Why then are those who promote Grace accused of teaching a "hyper-grace"? Grace is "hyper-wonderful" and also "hyper-abundant". So don't let the hyper-critics rob you of the power of Grace by demanding cautions, or so-called balance.
Grace is such a marvelous and wonderful gift of God, so much so that Satan is bent on damaging it to the point of destruction. Grace is the primary antidote to sin. No wonder that there is major spiritual warfare around it. Part of our problem is the "cessationist" view of Grace which believes that Grace is beneficial for our future life but not totally relevant or sufficient for our present life. Grace has to be the empowering presence of God that both justifies and sanctifies us.

Another way to ask the question is to ask about what you will miss out on if you don't do it.
Paul asked his people to pray that he would be bold in preaching (presenting) the Gospel. His Gospel was the Gospel of Grace (Acts 20). We urge you to learn how to be very bold about power and super-abundance (Rom 5:17, 20) of God's Grace. Don't be intimidated by the so-called wisdom and cautions of the religious.
Christian believers are often intimidated by the religious who are very wary of having confidence in God's giving of righteous. Too many are held to ransom by those who think one does not qualify without following rules.
