THE HOLY TRINITY
TEXT: “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one” (1 John 5:7).
The Bible tells us there is only one God. “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, is one LORD” (Deuteronomy 6:4), yet many passages in the Bible show the one God consists of three persons (God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost). A commentators said, “That the complexity and beauty of God’s being surpasses our understanding is not strange. He is God and we are men.”
Jesus’ baptism in Matthew 3:16-17 brings out the doctrine of the Trinity. Jesus the Son was baptized; the Holy Spirit descends like a dove; the Father speaks from heaven, “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased” The trinity is also in John 14: 26. Jesus promises the Father would send the Comforter (Holy Ghost), to remind believers all the teachings of Jesus. Christian youths must avoid the error of the Unitarians who don’t believe in the Trinity of the Godhead. The Trinity of the Godhead is a mystery that is beyond human understanding.
