Our Triune Savior

August 14, 2017

“In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour; To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.” (Titus 1:2-4)

“Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;” (Titus 2:10-13)

“But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;” (Titus 3:4-6)

Salvation is ours because we have a Savior. The Savior is God the Father and the Savior is the Lord Jesus Christ. These are not contradictory statements. The salvation given to men is the work of the Triune God.

God is Trinity. He is One God who is comprised of three Divine Persons. Each person of the Trinity is fully God, and fully distinct from the others. The Father is fully God, but the Father is not the Son or the Spirit. The Son is fully God, but the Son is not the Father or the Spirit. The Spirit is fully God, but the Spirit is not the Father or the Son. This the great mystery of the Trinity, God is One who is Three.

All three persons of the Trinity are actively involved in your salvation. Salvation is not the idea of the Father forced upon the Spirit and the Son. Salvation is the work of the Son imposed upon the Father and the Spirit. All three persons of the Trinity were and are actively at work in bringing salvation to men and in your own salvation. In love the Father sends His Son to save. The Son suffered to accomplish salvation. The Spirit applies the work of salvation to the person. Salvation is the work of the Triune God.
