When we watch a drama on stage or TV we meet various persons relating to one another. Within Scripture, we see the unfolding of Triune Drama. The Father moves into action reconciling and renewing all things through his Son and by his Spirit.
As we look at this drama we meet God as three persons communicating with one another as a communion of joyful love. The Father communicates with his Son out of his love for the Son. He communicates with his Son in joy and delight as they move together in mission. The Son communicates with his Father out of his love. He too communicates with his Father in joy and delight as he serves his Father in mission. And both Father and Son communicate with one another in the communication of the Spirit.
Within the drama, this Triune Communion also communicates with us. The Triune communion has a purpose that they share in together. Their purpose is to include others within the communion. They want others to share in the joyful communication within the communion of joyful love. Of course, we humans don’t want this inclusion. We wanted to go our own way. Nevertheless, the Triune communion goes on and on speaking and acting with purpose to reconcile and restore humanity to the communion of love. This purpose is all worked out in a great drama that reaches its goal in a new creation with God and humanity together in God’s new world.
