Mystery of Redemption

“In the mystery of redemption, all the divine persons put themselves in an order for our faith to take hold of. Faith may close with any one of the persons of the blessed Trinity, provided we divide not the divine essence in our thoughts; but in the mystery of redemption all is made obvious and handy to our faith; the Father considered as the fountain of the deity, to whom we come for grace and mercy; the second person clothed with our flesh, through whom we come; being assisted and enabled to come by the Holy Spirit, who is the third person.”  –Thomas Manton “Works of” Vol. 16, p. 360

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
