Now I don’t know what you think about when you think about the idea of salvation or coming to salvation or being saved… Some of you might be saying, “… Saved from what?” because we’re not at that point in our lives yet.

But I think as we, as Christians, start thinking about this idea of salvation we think of it in a somewhat disjointed — or disconnected — fashion. It is as though we never stop to realize that the entire Godhead is responsible for what we know as the plan of salvation. Our tendency is to focus on Jesus. And I don’t know that there is anything “wrong” with that it just is not informed enough to be able to carry through with the theological idea of what salvation is all about.

So, it’s not just the Son, Jesus Christ, who is active in our redemption… He is the most obvious one involved in it. It is rather not only Christ but the whole Triune God, according to Christian theology.

I think that when we think about God we tend to “dissect” Him, rather than think of Him as a whole. And it is not as thought we have not been taught correctly. God is a trinity and yet God is One. And this triune God, this One God, is active in our rescue from sin and from death …
