Quotes of Author: Cornelis-venema
Each of the Persons of the Trinity plays a unique role in the salvation of the elect. The Father elects to save His people in Christ (Eph. 1:4). The Son is appointed and willingly offers Himself as Savior and Mediator (Lk. 22:29; Heb. 10:5-7). The Holy Spirit furnishes Christ with the gifts necessary to accomplish His saving work (Lk. 1:32; 3:21-22; 4:18), and also applies the benefits of Christ’s work to those whom the Father gives to the Son (Jn. 6:38-39; Jn. 17:4). Thus, in a delightful harmony of mutual love and purpose, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit eternally covenant to redeem an elect community.
