God's Trinitarian existence, Frame states, means that his attributes are interpersonal and not simply personal (Frame, ST, p39). Our God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is Three Persons. The personal part of personhood is not lost in the cosmos in some kind of thesis of God, some kind of idea that He has. It is also not non-existent before God created anything with which He could have a personal relationship. This is very important. God was not without an object to love, to praise, to give glory to, to communicate with, to indwell in eternity past. He has always loved because the Father has always perfectly loved the Son and the Son the Father. And so, to come to Christ, to be reconciled to God, is to come to personhood - to become a real interpersonal, relational person - finally and really.
