Hebrews 2:1-4 

Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it. For since the message declared by angels proved to be reliable, and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution, how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was declared at first by the Lord, and it was attested to us by those who heard, while God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.

There is a spirit of consistency in this passage, a sense of cooperation as the Three work together to restore the Creation to its original pristine state. One of the things that strike me is that there is no indication of micromanagement. Another way to understand this passage is that it indicates a complete, and instantaneous awareness of the other members of the Godhead.

Betty and I had our first date 66 years ago, but are still frequently surprised when each of us is thinking along the same lines concerning a particular situation. The relationship within the Godhead is perfect. It is impossible for me to grasp the totality of the relationship between Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. There is no "I don't know, did you think about this aspect" in the Godhead.
