Blessed Trinity

For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.” Ephesians 2:18

meditationsI am unashamedly Trinitarian. A Unitarian or Modalist religion is of no interest to me, nor have any saving interest with me, neither provides any usefulness for me. One God, yet three Persons, indeed, is what the scriptures imply: the holy and blessed Trinity. Both Jews and non-Jews have access to the heavenly Father through Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit.

No, the word “trinity” is not in the scriptures, yet removing the label does not remove its endearing truth or make its truth any less powerful and glorious. Though I may not comprehend entirely the monotheism of a tri-une God, I do believe it. I dare not deny it or dismiss this truth, else I find that I am not slighting or demeaning the doctrine of reconciliation, but rather offending and demeaning He who reconciles us to Himself.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” —2 Corinthians 5:17-21
