The Clarity of the Trinity! (2 Corinthians 13:14)

19 Aug

I. The Doctrine of the Trinity is clearly taught in the Bible!
Although the term “Trinity” is not used in the Bible (our Jehovah Witness friends are right about that), nevertheless the concept of the Trinity is there.

And for the Apostle Paul such an affirmation did not in any way contradict that revered SHEMA of the Hebrew people found in Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.”

The doctrine of the Trinity is a matter of progressive revelation (that is, God did not tell us all we needed to know about a particular doctrine in one installment).

There are many clear texts that show the oneness of God, the Person of the Father, the deity of the Lord Jesus and the deity of the Holy Spirit.

II. Each Member of the Godhead has various characteristics!
The LJC >> grace         God the Father >> love         The HS >> fellowship

III. We Should Bless One Another with a Trinitarian Blessing!

Why speak of God in general terms when He has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit? Paul delineates the Three in this blessing. Why should we not do the same?

Today’s Challenge: If indeed the God who exists is triune, then how should His threeness be shown in our prayers, discussions, and meditation? How Person-specific should we be when we speak of and to the Lord? Do you ever direct your prayer to God the Holy Spirit? Why or why not?
