The Point Of the Trinity

30 Jul

Hello Again!

This is what God gave me today in his word:

For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, (Ephesians 1:15-17)

All normal talk for Paul; He commends them, he tells them he’s praying for them, so on and so forth. But wait, what’s this? The God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory? But Jesus I thought Jesus is/was God and God is/was Jesus, so how can Jesus (the Christ), if he is also God, have God as his God?

7 For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. (1 John 5:7)

Jesus can have God as his God because he is Jesus, but he is also God. I think that makes some sense. – But what’s the point? Now that I think about it, why does it even matter if the Trinity does or doesn’t exist?

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6)

The “point” of the Trinity is to remind you that Jesus can sympathize with us, have the power to defend us from Satanic attack, and overall do anything. – The point is they all have separate “jobs” yet are the same person. God poured out his wrath on his only son, so that Jesus could free us of our sin and so The Counselor (the Holy Spirit) could come.

    Amen brother.

    I love the way you understand the Godhead. I think the “point” is just as you said: the condescension of God, his ability to relate to us.
