Trinity Sunday Reflection

God told us that in Himself there are three distinct Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each one is God almighty. This is why we call each of them Divine. Yet they are not three Gods. None is older, nor greater than the other. The three Divine Persons are one and the same God.

With regard to Jesus, the second Person of the Holy Trinity, Jesus has two natures: a Divine and a Human. In his Divine nature, Jesus always was, right from the very beginning (hence Genesis 3:22, Behold, Adam is become as one of us, and John 8:58, Very truly I tell you, before Abraham was, I am.) Jesus’s Human nature began with the Annunciation (Luke, 1:26).

In our understanding of God through the Old Testatment and the New Testament, we have come to believe that God is a personal God, a real Being that has an interest in us, and created us so that we could share His glory in Heaven. Our God is not seen as somebody who is uninvolved and uncaring with us. This is why God sent us a path of salvation, a Redeemer, and a way of life, complete with provisions for reconciliation (Confession) and nourishment (Communion), and a physical Church, with authority to lead us, guide us and direct us on this path (Matthew 16:19).
