The Trinity explained
In his Sunday message, Miles used a construction project as a metaphor for explaining the Holy Trinity: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, who are all God.
“Think about a construction project, and one person says, ‘Here’s the plan for the construction project, we’re gonna make ’em all!’ And this guy designs them all. Then he sends someone else from the company to sign the contract with the city to build them all. And then he sends someone else from the company to actually build them all. So God the Father – in general terms – had the plan of salvation, He sent his Son to sign the contract with His blood, and then the Son left and sent the Holy Spirit to actually bring it out in our life.”
“They have three different roles but they’re all all God, all three of them are all-powerful, all three of them are all-knowing, all three of them are eternal.”
In John 16:7 Jesus refers to the Holy Spirit as our ‘Helper’, saying, “Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.”
Many people find it easy to believe in the Father and His Son Jesus, but struggle to submit their lives to the authority of the Holy Spirit. If you have repented of your sins and committed your life to Christ, the Holy Spirit lives inside you and brings about the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
CHALLENGE: Listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit today. You will know it because:
- It will always be aligned with and affirm what the Bible says.
- It will sound a lot like your conscience.
- It will always result in one of the following: love, joy, peace, longsuffering (or patience), kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
