From Charles Spurgeon on the Trinity

Image result for Charles Spurgeon

Beloved friends, here you have the Trinity, and there is no salvation apart from the Trinity. It must be the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. “All things that the Father hath are mine,” saith Christ, and the Father hath all things. They were always His; they are still His; they always will be His; and they cannot become ours until they change ownership, until Christ can say, “All things that the Father hath are mine”; for it is by virtue of the representative character of Christ standing as the surety of the covenant that the “all things” of the Father are passed over to the Son that they might be passed over to us. “It pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell; and of his fullness have all we received” (Col 1:19). But yet we are so dull that, though the conduit-pipe is laid on to the great fountain, we cannot get at it. We are lame; we cannot reach thereto; and in comes the third Person of the divine unity, even the Holy Spirit, and He receives of the things of Christ, and then delivers them over to us. So we do actually receive, through Jesus Christ, by the Spirit, what is in the Father…Give me a gospel with the Trinity, and the might of hell cannot prevail against it.
