πŸ‘‘ The Dispensation Of Grace

Many people have a mistaken notion that a dispensation is a period of time. This is not so, however, for the word β€œdispense” means simply β€œto deal out”. The wordΒ β€œdispensation”, then, means β€œthe act of dispensing or dealing out”, or β€œthat which is dispensed or dealt out”.

The wordΒ β€œdispensation” is used many times in the Bible, although it is not always translated the same way. In Ephesians 3:2, Paul writes ofΒ β€œthe dispensation of the grace of God, which is given me to you-ward”. God had committed to him the wonderful message of grace to dispense to others. Thus we read in ActsΒ 20:24Β his stirring words, spoken in the face of persecution and death:

β€œBut none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, AND THE MINISTRY WHICH I HAVE RECEIVED OF THE LORD JESUS, TO TESTIFY THE GOSPEL OF THE GRACE OF GOD.”

The β€œgospel” or β€œgood news” of the grace of God: This was the dispensation committed to Paul for us by the risen, ascended Lord. This is always Paul’s message.

β€œWhere sin abounded GRACE did much more abound…the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His GRACE…” (Rom. 5:20; Eph.1:7). source
