The Trinity

If you spend much time in a church gathering, it won’t be long before you come across the ‘Trinity’ in some way or other. The idea can be so commonly referred to that maybe you feel embarrassed to admit you don’t really know what it means. My aim in this short space is to unpack the word ‘Trinity’ so that we can delight more deeply in our God.
What is the Trinity? The Trinity is the one God who exists in three Persons (The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit) and each Person is fully God.
You won’t be able to find the word ‘Trinity’ anywhere in the Bible. But it is a truth that oozes from the whole Bible and articulates a faithful understanding of the Biblical data even though it challenges our minds. It recognises that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are all identified as God (Phil 1:2; John1:1; Acts 5:3-4) and that the Holy Spirit isn’t simply a force or spirit of God but a Person (Acts 16:7-15 shows the Spirit is a ‘he’ not an ‘it’). But what does this really mean?

becoming and staying a christian

“How did you become a Christian?”

You’ll be asked this question a lot in your life, if you put your faith in Jesus. Fellow Christians often want you to give a blow-by-blow account of what happened. Non-Christians more often want to know how it happened. How does anyone become a Christian? It’s a vital question to know your answer to. And your answer to that question, will also be your answer to this question:

How do I stay a Christian?

the holy spirit

“The Spirit-filled life is not a special, deluxe edition of Christianity. It is part and parcel of the total plan of God for His people.” A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God

If there’s one area that has caused some degree of confusion in church and theology since the New Testament was assembled all those years ago, it’s the role and person of the Holy Spirit.  Who is He, what is He, and what does He do?
