THE DISPENSATION OF GRACE
By Robert E. Hanna
Scripture Reading: Ephesians 3:1-9
Paul's Ephesians letter explains, defines, expounds and affirms that which the apostle was commissioned to reveal and establish: "The Dispensation of the Grace of God, which is given me to you-ward: How that by revelation He made known unto me the mystery ... Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men ... THAT THE GENTILES SHOULD BE FELLOWHEIRS AND OF THE SAME BODY AND PARTAKERS OF HIS PROMISE IN CHRIST BY THE GOSPEL: Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God .... Unto me, who am the least of all saints is this grace given."
" ... That I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make alI...see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, Who created all things by Jesus Christ." More detailed description of the Church which is His Body-the Church of the dispensation of the grace of God-is presented by the apostle in these verses:
"For He is our peace, Who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; having abolished in His flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in Himself of twain one new man, so making peace; and that He might reconcile both unto God in one Body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby" (Ephesians 2:14-16). God has always dispensed His grace as it pleased Him and. according to His plan and purpose, but the Dispensation of the Grace of God transcends all.
