I wrote for the CBMW Manual blog Friday about how the doctrine of the Trinity should transform our homes. The love of the triune God should pour over homes as it pours over us.
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.
