Counseling One Another

14 Trinitarian Works

Earlier this week, I posted a brief article on the work of the triune godhead in the believer’s sanctification. I was surprised by the interest the post generated. Therefore, I’ve decided to list the ways the three members work together to accomplish the divine will. Perhaps, in the future, I may develop each of these into its own article. For now, though, I hope this will encourage your personal study and your delight in the Trinity.
