To many in our society “the Trinity” seems an obscure concept and apart from relating it to our consumer culture of “get three for one” can’t find any traction with the teaching. Many believers also struggle with the thought that the one true God is Father, Son and Holy Ghost perhaps not surprising as the doctrine of the Trinity is rarely taught these days.
It is true that the triune nature of God is hard to understand and we should not expect to be able to comprehend everything about the Lord who is omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent, yet there is a glorious truth in this for us. Jesus declared “I and the Father are one” John 10v30 and that the Holy Spirit who comes from the Father will reveal Jesus to us John 16v14. John then records in the following chapter that Jesus in praying for us as the church prayed this astonishing prayer:.
“ That they may be one as Thou Father art in me and I in thee, that they may be one in us”. John 17v21. In other words whilst we may not fully understand the triune relationship of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; in answer to Jesus’ prayer we will experience it one day.
No wonder “eye has not seen, nor has the ear heard neither has it entered into the heart of man what Thou (God) has prepared for those who love Him” …. But it will be a glorious and wonderful relationship centred on Christ. Through which we receive the indwelling Holy Spirit and can entre into God the Father’s presence by means of His shed blood to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
