Do You Understand the Trinity?

December 23, 2021 Save Article

PRAY OVER THIS:

“And the angel answered and said to her, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.’”

(Luke 1:35)

PONDER THIS:

It has been said, “Try to explain the Trinity, you’ll lose your mind; deny it, you may lose your soul.” This is Bible doctrine. The only reason we believe it is because the Bible teaches it. You may say, “Well, I can’t put any faith in something I can’t understand.” Then don’t turn on the lights because you don’t understand electricity. You may say, “I understand electricity. I’m an electrician.” But even Einstein said he didn’t understand electricity. He hoped before he died he could understand electricity. But he never did.

Don’t think that you have to define or explain God. The only way you know about the Holy Trinity is by what is revealed in Scripture. This is a sacred mystery, but it is absolutely true.

  • What are some other things you believe in even if you are unable to see or explain them fully?
  • What are some other Bible doctrines that require faith for belief?

PRACTICE THIS:

Take time today to meditate on the mystery of the Trinity. Think on passages like the one in today’s devotion that reveal the reality of the Trinity.
