Topic Notes

  • There are many misconceptions about the Holy Spirit
  • “God the Father spoke the creative words to bring the universe into being. But it was God the Son, the eternal Word of God, who carried out these creative decrees.” -Wayne Grudem
  • Who is God, the Father?
  • God the Father spoke the words to bring the Universe into being.
  • Gen 1 tells us “GOD” spoke, but compare John 1:3 that tells us it was Jesus who carried it out.
  • God the Father loves the world! John 3:16-17
  • God the Father sent Jesus, and was willing to sacrifice Jesus (his “Son”).
  • So we may say that the role of the Father in creation and redemption has been to plan and direct and send the Son and Holy Spirit. This is not surprising, for it shows that the Father and the Son relate to one another as a father and son relate to one another in a human family: the father directs and has authority over the son, and the son obeys and is responsive to the directions of the father. The Holy Spirit is obedient to the directives of both the Father and the Son. – Wayne Grudem
