The Grace Message

Lessons from the Heart
By Pastor Don Webb

Webb Webb “…If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward.” Ephesians 3:2.

The grace message is about God’s way of dealing with men in the present dispensation of grace! As a part and parcel God also revealed a message of salvation from sin apart from works called “the gospel of the grace of God.” Acts 20:24. It is God’s unique message of how men can be saved by His grace through faith in Christ alone. The program of grace began with the salvation of the Apostle Paul in Acts Chapter 9 and will end with the rapture of the Church which is His Body, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18.

Under the kingdom program God preached the kingdom gospel, not the grace gospel or the grace message. At that time He was also proving Israel to be no better than the rest of the gentile world. Once He had shown that there is “no difference between the Jew and the Gentile,” He temporarily set Israel aside and opened the fold gates of His grace in this “mystery” dispensation.

So today in the dispensation of grace Christ’s death is preached as good news, “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; …he was buried, and he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4.

His burial and resurrection are the proof that the work is finished and He can truly offer salvation from judgment to all who simply truth Him as their risen Savior. That is the gospel of grace in the dispensation of grace!

Would you like to have the forgiveness of sins and possess His eternal life? “For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23.

Why not tell Him today that you believe He died for you and you trust Him alone as your risen savior? Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. (Acts 16:31).
