In this message we come to the mystery of God’s economy, the mystery that is actually Christ Himself.
In 1:25 Paul speaks of the stewardship of God. The Greek word rendered stewardship, oikonomia, may also be rendered economy or administration. The stewardship is the economy, and God’s economy is His dispensation. God’s intention in His economy is to dispense Himself—the Father, the Son, and the Spirit—into His chosen people.
