“Essential attributes are shared equally by the three persons. All three person are infinite, sovereign, loving, and omniscient. However, only the Father begets, only the Son is begotten, and only the Spirit is spirated.”
“In every external work of the Godhead, the Father is the source, the Son is the mediator, and the Spirit is the one who brings about the intended effect.”
-Michael Horton in the Christian Faith, page 290.
