The Trinity Working Together In Salvation

I was listening to this on the way to work this morning.  It speaks of how the Trinitarian God works together in salvation.  This is a subject I don’t hear talked about much.  How often to we think of  how the Trinity works together in salvation?  This song made me think about just that!

Father, Son and Spirit: three and yet one

Working as a unit to get things done

Our salvation began in eternity past

God certainly has to bring all His purpose to pass

A triune, eternal bond no one could ever sever

When it comes to the church, peep how they work together

The Father foreknew first, the Son came to earth

To die- the Holy Spirit gives the new birth

The Father elects them, the Son pays their debt and protects them

The Spirit is the One who resurrects them

The Father chooses them, the Son gets bruised for them

The Spirit renews them and produces fruit in them

This is from Shai Linne’s song Mission Accomplished.  He is an artist at Lamp Mode Recordings.

Whatever your style of music I think we could use more lyrics like this.

What do you think?

While I am not what I would call someone who likes rap I have to say I liked this enough to put the video on my website.

“How often to we think of how the Trinity works together in salvation?”
Sadly I think it is rare for most of us, although it is a marvelous thing to contemplate. Rather than being encouraged to this by the church, I think it is actually kept veiled to us because many churches (ex: many in the SBC) maintain a disjointed view of God’s work in salvation, i.e. “Christ died for all, the Spirit calls all who hear, the Father chooses the elect.” With such different agendas within the Godhead, no wonder we don’t see Them working together!

Very cool! This song is a reflection of the lyrics on the whole album. Theology from a hip-hop artist? Sure! I pray he’s reaching folks who might not otherwise get this exposure.

Thinking about this topic might force some to re-think their positions. This discussion is also really missing in my experience. If we insist too much on the autonomy of man it seems that the Trinity working together in salvation doesn’t actually do or accomplish anything.

Good thoughts.
