Marveling at Our Trinitarian Salvation

Yesterday was Trinity Sunday. Sometimes I fear that, like Esau who sold his birthright for a mess of pottage, we can neglect the most beautiful of all Biblical doctrines given to us, that of the Trinity, and leave it to be mediated on by “professional” scholars, simply because it is complex and mysterious. But according to the New Testament writers, the doctrine of the Trinity is imminently practical; the truth that our Lord is one God in three Persons is at the heart of the Gospel and of Christian experience. Never is this made more clear than in Paul’s soaring introduction to Ephesians, where Paul praises all Three Persons of the Holy Trinity for their work in saving believers. I attempted to bring out Paul’s Trinitarian emphasis in my sermon on this passage yesterday morning at Curve Baptist Church; you can listen to the audio below.

Eph 1:3-14
