Do you enjoy unraveling mysteries? Delving into stories where the plot gradually unfolds, revealing deeper layers of character and emotion? It’s like watching a captivating movie, isn’t it? Well, think of the Trinity in the same way – a divine mystery unfolding before our eyes as God reveals Himself to us through Scripture, like scenes playing out on the silver screen of our souls.

Yesterday, we touched on three foundational truths about the Trinity: three distinct persons, each fully God, yet one. It’s a concept that can seem complex and even overwhelming at times. We might find ourselves struggling to grasp its depth or feeling like it’s beyond our comprehension. But as followers of Jesus, we’re called to lean into this mystery rather than shy away from it.

Consider the three persons of the Trinity – God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They work in perfect unity, each revealing a unique aspect of God’s character and purpose. Through the Father, we witness the Creator, the Lover, the Judge, and the Ruler. In Jesus Christ, we see the embodiment of obedience, compassion, grace, mercy, forgiveness, sacrifice, and love. Through the Holy Spirit, we experience awakening, restoration, and maturity in our faith journey.

It’s true; our human minds can’t fully fathom the intricate nature of the Trinity. Yet, this divine mystery invites us to dive deeper, to seek a greater understanding of who God is and to praise his greatness. As the Trinity pours into us, filling us with love and truth, we’re called to pour out that same love into the world around us. It’s an eternal cycle of sacrificial, self-giving, overflowing love and grace that defines our relationship with the Triune God.


Each person of the Trinity has a role in God’s plan. You have a purpose in God’s plan for creation. How can you live out your purpose, not only by pursuing God in a deeper relationship but by using your gifts in his house?


Heavenly father, I come before you in awe of you. Thank you for revealing yourself to me through scripture. Guide me into all truth and wisdom as I seek to grow in my understanding. I surrender ourselves to your plan. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
