Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
ctical religion: — Let us see what simple facts are apparent in this revelation of God, and what service they may render to us in real life.
I. THE FATHER
1. He is the Creator of all things. As such He reveals His wisdom, etc.
2. He is the preserver of all things.
3. He is King of all, bending all to His will, and overruling all by His providence.
4. He is in a peculiar sense the Parent of His spiritual family.
II. THE SON. God with us. This is a revelation of the humanity of God, and serves great purposes. It helps us to know and love God, and makes the redemption of man possible.
III. THE HOLY GHOST. God within us. His presence is proved by its fruits (Galatians 5:22, 23).
(W. F. Adeney, M. A.)
