Doxology to the Trinity from Proverbs 3

“My son, forget not thou my Law, but let thine heart keep my commandments. For they shall increase the length of thy days and the years of life, and thy prosperity. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them on thy neck, and write them upon the table of thine heart. So shalt thou find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own wisdom. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy ways. Be not wise in thine own eyes: but fear the Lord, and depart from evil” (Proverbs 3:1-7, Geneva Bible).

This is the new covenant, that the Son, from the right hand of the Father, writes God’s Law on our hearts by the Holy Spirit: “But this Man after He had offered one sacrifice for sins, sitteth forever at the right hand of God...for with one offering hath He consecrated forever them that are sanctified. For the Holy Ghost also beareth us record: for...He...said...‘This is the Testament that I will make unto them after those days,’ saith the Lord, ‘I will put My Laws in their heart, and in their minds I will write them’” (Hebrews 10:12-16, quoting from Jeremiah 31:31-34).

Father, we thank you for revealing Your Word.
Son, we thank You for being that Word-in-flesh.
Holy Spirit, we thank you for writing that Word on our hearts and minds.

We rejoice, great God, in this new covenant promised by the Father, inaugurated by the blood of the Son, and sealed by the Holy Spirit.

One God in three Persons, blessed Trinity, draw us to Your Word and write it on our whole being to Your glory this day!
