Trinity as Roadtrip

"'For through him [Jesus] we both have access in one Spirit to the Father' (Eph. 2:18).  Think of it this way.  The Son is the road.  The Father is the city we are driving to, and the Spirit is the car.  We are going to the Father, the Son is the way we are to go, and the Spirit enables us to go.  Who needs a road that goes nowhere?  Who needs a city that no one can get to?  Who needs a car when there is no road, and no destination at the end of it?  When we are being biblical, we never exclude any member of the Godhead from our thoughts."
