Fathers and Sons

Peter Leithart writes:

Without continuity between fathers and sons, the achievements of each generation are undone in the next, and the kingdom cannot not grow. On the other hand, if the sons do nothing but repeat what the fathers have done, the result is stagnation. We avoid this dilemma by striving to the life found in the ultimate family, the Trinity. There is a dynamic between Father and Son. They are not simply identical. And yet there is no breach or competition. The Father promotes the glory of His Son, the Son glorifies His Father, and they are bound together in the mutual love of the Spirit.
