I have been reading Mike Reeves Delighting in the Trinity. If you have not read it yet you should immediately stop what you’re doing, purchase it, and invest some time digging into it. It is chock-full of truth about who God is. It stirs the affections and drives the heart toward Jesus Christ. All doctrine should be taught this way. These truths sink to the bottom of your heart. As I started reading through it, I started seeing this thread. This theme through out many chapters that made me ask the question, “How does the trinity transform my marriage?”

Does it matter at all? Should it? Do I lead differently because of these trinitarian truths?  I’d like to offer a biblical theology of sorts. I’d like to draw that thread taut so you can follow it all the way from eternity past and into your homes.

The trinity is a fellowship of eternal love. Paul says, “In love [the Father] predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. . . . In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory” (Eph. 1:4-6, 13-14). This passage overflows with eternal, Trinitarian love. In eternity past, the Father predestines us in Christ and secures our inheritances as his children by the Spirit. “In Christ” is union and communion language. We have been blessed with all spiritual blessing because we have been included in the communion of God’s eternal, overflowing love. All of this love, goodness, and blessing in eternity past.
