In light of my love for the gracious covenant of God, the bond of friendship every true believer enjoys with Father, Son and Spirit, I propose to share notes from John Owen’s great work on communion with the triune God. May you be blessed and edified as I am sure I will be!
It can be read in its totality here: Communion
- common nature (humanity and spirituality) with Christ
- common interest (God’s glory)
- common condition (blessed, suffering)
- common actions (gospel)
- common delight
Essentially in this bond of fellowship God communicates himself.
Our worship, love and the exercise of faith are toward each of the persons of the trinity.
Each TEACH: John 6:45, Matthew 17:5, John 14:26.
All GRACES come from all three persons. The Father communicates by way of original authority, the Son by purchased treasury and the Spirit by immediate efficacy. (Romans 8:11).
