22 In Greek, the same word as economy in v. 9 and in 1:10. In relation to God, this word denotes God's economy, God's administration; in relation to the apostle, it denotes the stewardship (stewardshi is used also in 1 Cor. 9:17). The stewardship of the grace is for the dispensing of the grace of God to His chosen people for the producing and building up of the church. Out of this stewardship comes the ministry of the apostle, who is a steward in God's house, ministering Christ as God's grace to God's household.
