This Sunday is Trinity Sunday. Do you understand the Trinity. Some don’t so here is an explanation.
If you really want an explanation of the Trinity, the best one possible comes from the great mind of C. S. Lewis who undertook that task in his book Mere Christianity seventy years ago. He writes, “An ordinary simple Christian kneels down to say his prayers. He is trying to get into touch with God. But if he is a Christian he knows that what is prompting him to pray is also God: God so to speak, inside him. But he also knows that all real knowledge of God comes through Christ, the Man who was God, that Christ is standing beside him, helping him to pray, praying for him. You see what is happening. God is the thing to which he is praying the goal he is trying to reach. God is also the thing inside him which is pushing him on the motive power. God is also the road or bridge along which he is being pushed to that goal. The whole threefold life of the three‑person Being is actually going on in that ordinary act of prayer.”
That’s as good an explanation of the Trinity as you and I are apt to get and it is still too complicated for most of us. So as you pray, remember it is God’s Holy Spirit prompting you to get in touch with Him. It is through God’s Son that we are made more deeply aware of the love language that God wants us to be a part of in our lives. So the Trinity is God, God’s Son the Word and the connection to us through the Holy Spirit. Clear now? Well perhaps if you are still curious it is the Holy Spirit touching you now.
Have a blessed and peace filled day,
