14 Trinitarian Works…Revisited

[This morning, while confessing the Athanasian Creed along with others attending the Stay Sharp conference at Waterdam Evangelical Free Church, I was reminded of this blog post from last year. The more we meditate on the greatness and mystery of our God the more we should worship Him who alone is worthy.]

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.
