Our Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!!

Our Triune God – the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Matthew 3:16-17
After His baptism as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and settling on Him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy”.

Matthew 28:19
“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.”

Speaking about the Trinity, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit – God in three persons. There is no way to adequately explain the Christian doctrine of the Trinity. The Trinity is difficult to fully understand or explain. The word “Trinity” is not used in Scripture. This is a term that is used to describe the triune God, three coexistent, co-eternal persons that make up God. This is not suggesting that there are three Gods. The Trinity is one God made up of three persons, not 3 gods. Each member of the Trinity is God – God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son who came to earth to become a sin bearer and take our place on the cross. The Holy Spirit was sent as a “comforter” after Jesus death and resurrection. Each part of the triune God is used in different ways and for different reasons. Sometimes I have heard the Trinity likened to an egg. There are three separate parts but the three parts make a whole. The shell, the egg yolk and the egg white are separate but together at the same time. Also I have heard the Trinity explained as a person who is a father because he has a child and a son because he has a father and an uncle because he has a nephew. However it is explained to make it easier to understand it is still awesome and amazing to me!
