Nevertheless, we can make a distinction between the three persons of the Trinity, because each member of the Godhead has unique attributes.

But the profit of this sacrifice also, by which he is worshiped, returns to us. Accordingly, the holy fathers, the more confidently they extolled God's benefits among themselves and others, were the more keenly aroused to pray ...

God did not die. The God who took on Himself a human nature died in His humanity, but the deity did not perish on the cross.

— R.C. Sproul

The gospel is only good news when we understand the bad news.

Your task, O preacher, is to make sure that you are faithful to the text, that you are faithful to the proclamation of that gospel, that you are faithful to set forth the whole counsel of God, and then step back and let it happen.
