Glory be to the Father,
Who by His almighty power and love created me,
making me in the image and likeness of God.
Glory be to the Son,
Who by His Precious Blood delivered me from hell,
and opened for me the gates of heaven.
Glory be to the Holy Spirit,
Who has sanctified me in the sacrament of Baptism,
and continues to sanctify me
by the graces I receive daily from His bounty.
Glory be to the Three adorable Persons of the Holy Trinity,
now and forever.
The truth of the Holy Trinity is that it is impossible to imagine, impossible to fathom, and something we believe in. The Trinity is something God wants us to know.
If you believe the Bible reveals that God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, then you ought to believe that God made this known because he wants us to know it. “The secret things belong to the LORD,” but God’s triunity is not among those secret things, or he wouldn’t be talking about it and neither would we. “The things that are revealed belong to us” (Deu. 29:29).
It’s the doctrine of who God must be if salvation is what we think it is. The Father who gave his Son and Spirit to save us must be a Father who always had a Son and Spirit. If you describe the Trinity and then have to tack on the fact that the Trinity saves, you probably described it too abstractly in the first place. The Bible bundles Trinity and gospel, and so should we.
The Trinity is our guiding light and we must always follow it. It is the thing in this world that has kept me out of trouble, in love, and safe. The holy trinity will continue to do that for me, and I know I will do everything for the holy trinity. Do you agree?
