Who are you trusting in?
Or A Triune God! Spurgeon asks “On whom dost thou trust?” “I trust,” says the Christian, “a triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I trust the Father, believing that he has chosen me from before the foundations of the world; I trust him as my father, to care for me, to provide for me in Providence, to teach me, to guide me, to feed me, to correct me if need be, and to bring me home to his own house where the many mansions are.
I trust the Son. Very God of very God is he—the man Christ Jesus. I trust in him to take away all my sins, for he suffered their penalty upon the cross; I trust him to put all those sins away for ever by his own sacrifice. I trust him to wrap me about with his perfect righteousness, and to adorn me with all his excellencies. I know him to be my intercessor—so often I pray to present my prayers and desires before his Father’s throne. I believe him to be my resurrection and my life, that, though I die, yet I may live again.
I expect him to be my advocate at the last great assize, to plead my cause, and to stand there to justify me. I trust him with all that I have, having no merit of my own, no confidence in my own tears, or prayers, or preachings, or willings, or doings, or believings—I trust him, for what he is, what he has done, what he has promised yet to do—I rely on him, the incarnate Son of God.”
“And next,” says the Christian, “I trust the Holy Spirit; he has begun to save me from my inbred sins; I trust him to drive them all out; I trust him to curb my temper, to subdue my will, to enlighten my understanding, to check my passions, to comfort my despondence, to help my weakness, to illuminate my darkness. I trust the Holy Spirit to dwell in me as my life, to reign, in me as my king, to sanctify me wholly, spirit, soul, and body, and then to take me up to dwell with the saints in light for ever. Thus I trust a triune God through the man-mediator, Christ Jesus.
(From Charles Spurgeon Sermon: In Whom Art Thou Trusting?)
I trust Him as my father, to care for me,
to provide for me in Providence,
to teach me, to guide me, to feed me,
to correct me if need be,
and to bring me home to His own
house where the many mansions are.
