Perseverance is a Trinitarian project, grounded in the Father’s election, the Son’s intercession, and the Spirit’s possession. The connection between the Father’s election and our perseverance is a person—Jesus Christ. He has offered the ultimate sacrifice, sat down in the ultimate holy place, and now offers ultimate help to those in need. Now, as the Spirit sanctifies us through his indwelling possession, we are able to put to death sin and cry out, “Abba, Father.”
