The doctrine of the Trinity, God as Three-in-One, is one of the most difficult in Christian theology. John Wesley said, “Bring me a worm that can comprehend a man, and then I will show you a man that can comprehend the Triune God.” Though it is challenging, studying the Trinity can also be very rewarding. Augustine said, “There is no subject where error is more dangerous, research more laborious, and discovery more fruitful than the oneness of the Trinity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.” This series approaches this beautiful and challenging doctrinal topic. The goal of our series is to reach a richer and fuller understanding of God, including His love, His plan of salvation, and how the Trinity works in the world and in the lives of believers.

Thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:
- The Doctrine of the Trinity: ONE God existing eternally in THREE distinct persons and all three are equally and simultaneously God.
- The Old Testament is in the New Testament revealed; The New Testament is in the Old Testament concealed.
Practical Implications of the Trinity:1. Reclaim a Godly vision of the world; stop dividing secular and sacred.2. See yourself as imago dei (image of God) and live to reflect and demonstrate the characteristics of the triune God.3. Treat others as imago dei. Just because someone doesn’t serve Jesus doesn’t mean they were not created in His image.
- God does not want to improve our image but our lives. And the best way to improve our lives is to live as an image of Him.
- Let’s not be so busy constructing our image that we struggle to be transformed into His image.
Love you all! See you this Sunday!
BTW: Here’s a great song for the week…
