You may have had a Jehovah’s Witness knock on your door and challenge you with the question, “How can one understand the Trinity?” While even a child can understand there are not three gods but only one God in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (see for example Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14), I would never claim to be able to understand all that involves. If I could, I would be God, or God’s equal, and if that were true our world would be in terrible trouble. The finite (you and me) cannot exhaustively understand the Infinite (God), and only Terrible arrogance ignores that truth. Today’s devotional shows what happens if we reject the doctrine of the Trinity as taught in Scripture. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Matthew 28:18-20 (ESV)
18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
“If in the Godhead there be but one, not three, then the Father, Son, or the Spirit, must needs be that one, if any one only: so then the other two are nothing.” [The Works of John Bunyan II, (Edinburgh: The Banner of Truth Trust, 1854), p. 416]
