“Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;”
King James Version (KJV)
1:25 According to the dispensation of God which is given me - Or, the stewardship with which I am intrusted.
Col 1:25 According to the dispensation. God made him a minister of the church. That ministry was a "stewardship" (dispensation) committed to him. He refers to the great responsibility of the apostolic office. He as a "steward of the grace of God" (Eph 3:2). To fulfil the word of God. Not only to do what the word required, but to preach the word everywhere.
