The Trinity At Work In Salvation :

The doctrine of the means of grace assumes and illustrates the glorious doctrine of the Trinity; the Father chose us, the Son became one of us to redeem us, and the Holy Spirit applies the fruits of the incarnation to and in us.

This, boiled down to a sentence, is the essence of Ephesians 1:3-14. Three distinct sections in it -- The Father chose (3-6), the Son carried out the Father's will and redeemed (7-12), the Spirit applies it to us (13-14). Each section closes with the same phrase -- "to the praise of His glory."

I preached through this recently, and have a post going up soon on it. :)
