We Cannot Fully Understand the Teaching of the Trinity
Adventure 4: The Trinity
How should learning about God as a Trinity cause me to feel?
I should feel humbled to think that God is great and mysterious beyond my understanding! I should rejoice in Him for Who He is. 2 Samuel 7:22 – Therefore You are great, O Lord GOD. For there is none like You, nor is there any God besides You, according to all that we have heard with our ears.
This Truth Makes
Although we cannot understand the Trinity, we have learned that we cannot do without the Trinity. Without the Trinity, the world would never have been created. Without the Trinity, nobody could ever have his sins forgiven. Without the Trinity, we could not pray. Without the Trinity, everything
we know as reality would explode into nothingness. We are truly dependent upon the Trinity.
We should be grateful for the triune (three-in-one) Godhead. We should be humble because we cannot fully understand
God’s perfect three-in-oneness. We should never think that we have the Trinity totally figured out. If someone thinks he understands the Trinity completely – it is more likely that he has it all wrong.
Isaiah 40:25 – “To whom then will you liken Me, or to whom shall I be equal?” says the Holy One.
