Yes, God is One in Three, I'd say (ha), in the sense of the Father, Son and Spirit being each, One. Where one is the other two are ever present; you cannot separate them. And yet Three in One.



Well, actually, maybe He is also One in Three. :)

L.L., Good questions. Creation is certainly related to the revelation God gives us of himself as Father, Son and Spirit. It really is about life, and even hitting home for life here and now. While at the same time there is great mystery in the Trinity and this Trinitarian love. But that certainly mirrors the mystery that is present even in our human relationships.

I do think these aspects of God as One in Three, also hit home in ways we can readily understand and relate to in any self-giving love we give and receive. In certainly practical ways like taking time to listen to a family member or friend. Doing something special for another, even if it's just washing the dishes.

You ask good questions here for us to think about. Alot to learn and experience here. Thanks.

I suppose it could be interesting to consider the unique aspects of each "part" of God and then try to mirror those aspects in our earthly relationships. (The father, for instance, being generous to give his Son, the Son being willing to be given, the Spirit standing by to comfort and maybe even empower. How would this translate to a marriage, a friendship, a church? And could we play different "parts" at different times?)

Joe, This is at the heart of what we're called to be in Jesus. As he served taking the lowliest place of all on the cross for the love of the world and of the Father, so we are to follow and do the same.

There's always the danger of doing right and even good things, yet not doing it in love (as we see in the letter of Christ to the church in Ephesus in Revelation and from Paul's poem of 1 Corinthians 13.)

But I would agree that often we can find the love of God as we seek humbly to serve others in love.

Thanks.

I find that acts of service help me to experience this kind of love. When I, in obedience to the Father serve in the name of Christ with His love working in and through me and through the power of the Spirit, I am drawing nearer to God's heart and drawing others to Him as well.
