Father Son Spirit Individual Works

We know that our God is a Triune God — One God in essence and three distinct Person in works.  So while the Godhead is three distant persons, and their works might be thought of as individual works, there remains a unity, a harmony, of purpose, plan, and execution of their works in creation and redemption. 

The triune nature of the Godhead is difficult to explain because it is difficult for our finite minds to understand an infinite being.  (Read What is the Triunity of Creation?) However, we are blessed to have been given much information, in God’s Word, that helps us in understanding.

For a better understanding of the Triune Godhead, we can study the attributes of the Father, Son, and Spirit.  We can also learn about the works that each Person of the Godhead performed individually.  And yet, we know there is only one God (Isaiah 43:10; 44:6,8; 45:5), so we must understand that the three Persons of the Godhead work both individually and in perfect unity.  There’s beautiful scriptural support for this.

Let’s answer some questions to see the harmony of Fathers, Son, and Spirit in their creative and redemptive works.

Be Ready Always...

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15).  When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.

When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.  

By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
