Reflections
for Sunday, June 11, 2017

Father, Son and Holy Spirit! For so many people, even today, the proclamation that there is a God is increasingly difficult. Even more difficult to believe is that God is three persons and yet still one God. It can take a person many years to believe completely in the Trinity. And there is no way that we can ever understand this teaching completely.

For many, the only way to understand the Trinity is through Jesus Himself. When we begin to walk with Jesus, we must begin to look at reality the way that He looks at reality. We encounter Jesus as a young Jewish man and we must spend some time looking at the world from that perspective. Jesus accepts the teaching of the Jews of the Pharisee school - for the most part. We could say that Jesus is formed as a Pharisee but also by the presence of God in a very special way. He calls God His Father and eventually also says that He and the Father are One.

Then Jesus begins to speak also about His Spirit, the Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit of the Father. The Father and the Spirit are not realities invented by Christ, but rather the deepest realities of all that is which Jesus is now beginning to speak about with His followers. Jesus reveals reality to us and the relationships within reality.

Slowly Jesus reveals to us that God is a reality that is Triune and which reflects love within itself and outside itself. Most of the time we don't spend much time reflecting on this reality because it is so far beyond our capacity to understand. On the other hand, this mystery of the Trinity, this mystery of Jesus, this mystery of the Father's love - this is the deepest nature of our world and draws us all to learn to accept God's love and forgiveness.

We walked with Jesus through His life, to His death and then came to know His Resurrection. All of these great mysteries point us to Father, Son and Spirit. The more walk with Jesus and the more we are formed by Him, the more we can understand and delight in the Most Holy Trinity. Amen.
