Three in One

“What’s our home group discussion about, Pauline?”

“The Trinity. How’s that for easy listening discussion to promote Christian fellowship?” I told my husband with a smirk.

On Sunday evening, the home group would meet at our house and Tom was to lead the discussion. He sneaked off to the back room in order to research the subject on the computer.

Sunday morning’s message covered our topic.

“The Trinity is not a math problem to be solved,” stated our pastor, “but a relationship to be enjoyed.”

The Trinity has always baffled me. I believe there are three persons in the godhead–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I just don’t understand it.

Scripture uses the pronoun we and our in Genesis when speaking of creation. Christ is foreshadowed and even seen in the Old Testament, and the Holy Spirit is throughout the entire Bible. I just can’t figure it out. Especially when you realize that Jesus has a resurrected body.

But I believe it. I understand that I don’t understand. In fact, I don’t know much about anything. Sure, I’ve lived for 57 years, but I’ve only been to 1/3 of the states in America and 4 or 5 other countries. I studied Social Work in school but can’t fix a car. I have two dogs but can’t make them well if they are sick.

The list is endless.

But the God who made everything knows everything, and He says there is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus told His disciples, “If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father.” He also stated that no one can come to God except through Him.

So I’m trusting.

And waiting until heaven.

And then I’ll understand.

For now, I’m just glad I don’t have to operate on my dogs.

And so are they.
