Lightner: the irrational answer

Sunday, October 21, 2018
    Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, To God’s elect, strangers in the world, scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia, who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood: Grace and peace be yours in abundance.
    —1 Peter 1:1-2 (NIV)
    The doctrine of the blessed Trinity is a reminder of the supernaturalness of biblical Christianity. The doctrine defies rationalization, yet it provides for the believer the answer to the unity and diversity of the world.
    ... Robert P. Lightner (1931-2018), The God of the Bible [1973], Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Book House, 1978, formerly published as The First Fundamental: God, p. 69 (see the book)
    See also 1 Pet. 1:1-2; Isa. 11:1-2; Matt. 28:19; John 14:16-17; 15:26; Acts 2:33; 2 Cor. 1:21-22; 13:14; Gal. 4:4-6; 1 Tim. 3:16; Tit. 3:4-7; Heb. 9:14; 1 John 5:6
Quiet time reflection:
    Creator Lord, You have known us, inside and out.
