GRACE IN A DISPENSATION & THE DISPENSATION OF GRACE - By Robert E. Hanna



Scripture Reading: Psalms 84:11, Ephesians 2:8-9

There was never a time when God did not exercise grace  in dealing with His people. "For the Lord God is a sun and  shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will  He withhold from them that walk uprightly" (Psalms 84:11).  God has bestowed His grace in many specific instances and to  accomplish certain goals in accordance with His plan and  purpose. "And now for a little space, grace hath been shewed  from the Lord our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and  to give us a nail (a sure abode) in His holy place, that our God  may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our  bondage" (Ezra 9:8). "And I will pour upon the house of  David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of  grace" (Zechariah 12:10).

Today, we live in the dispensation of grace. Although  salvation was always by grace through faith, there was in past  dispensations an additional ingredient: Certain works were  required in orderto prove genuine and sincere faith. Note this  statement by Jesus Christ as He dispatched His apostles:  "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved." How  different is the salvation formula today! "For by grace are ye  saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the  gift of God; NOT OF WORKS, lest any man should boast"  (Ephesians 2:8-9). "Not by works of righteousness which we  have done, but according to His mercy He saved us" (Titus  3:5).
