THE WAY OF LIFE: A Theological Look at Relationally Imaging The Triune God
BRIEF STATEMENT AS WE BEGIN
As we begin to think about the Trinity and relating God to our lives, keep in mind the human family and its multiplying potential. Also, keep in mind the Great Commission (Matthew 28) which is the invitation into the Christian family… bringing people into fellowship with God through a love relationship with Jesus Christ making disciples. Christians commune in a family fellowship. The relationship of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is shared with those of us who in believing participate.
1 John 1:1-3 (ESV) shares with us, “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.”
What follows in these blogs is a theological exploration of the relationship, if you will, of GOD Himself (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). In Him, we find a pattern for relationships for human beings to have with Him and with one another.
* The GOD of the Bible (YHWH) expresses Himself complete in Three Persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
* The Bible is the inerrant expressed Word of God and shares all about Himself perfectly as He inspired.
* Jesus Christ (also known as Jesus of Nazareth) is the Son of God and is God.
* A word often used to describe the Three Persons of God is ‘Trinity’ and describes One Eternal Being (YHWH)
