The Doctor: Trinitarian Wrought Salvation

On Romans 8:3-4:

Notice that here, as everywhere, the Apostle mentions the names of the Three Persons of the blessed Holy Trinity.  “God sending his own Son’, and the end of the statement is, ‘We walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit’ – Father, Son, Holy Spirit.  The real explanation of the trouble in most Christian lives is the fact that believers start thinking about salvation in terms of themselves, and not in terms of God, the Holy Trinity, and what God has planned and prepared before time.  They start by looking into themselves, and they spend their lives doing so.  If they but looked at Him, looked out and saw it all there, then they would humble themselves and be filled with praise to God for ever having brought them into relationship with his great and glorious plan.  This is the way to look at salvation: ‘God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh, that…’.  Work that out, I say!  Let us spend our whole lives in looking at that and working that out.  – D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Romans Vol. 6, p. 312

    “Do you think that sometimes we focus so much on ‘who God is to me’ that we forget to look at who the great I AM is?” It’s an epidemic among Christians nowadays.
