Week 1 of a six-week series called Language of the Spirit. This week, we explore the Holy Trinity. What exactly is the Holy Trinity or Triune God? We have been taught that God consists of three-parts or three-persons (depending on how you were taught). Those three-persons we have come to know as God the Father, Mother, Creator or by other names, Jesus as Son, Savior, Redeemer, Messiah, and the Holy Spirit, advocate, sanctifier. So how does the Holy Trinity relate within itself and how are we included? What does our relationships with the Trinity look like? These are really big questions that often leave us with more big questions than answers. If you are like me, the Trinity, and especially the Holy Spirit, seemed more like a mystery, a puzzle to be solved when in fact we have no words to adequately describe this Triune God.
In this series, we explore the Holy Spirit. Who is the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity or Triune God? How does the Holy Spirit walk with us, be present with us, and guide us? We will discuss various characteristics of the Holy Spirit through Old Testament, New Testament, and Epistle scripture readings. Hopefully this series will assist you in naming and noticing the work of the Spirit in your life and in the lives of everyone you meet and also in the lives of those who you don’t even know. What exactly is the Holy Spirit up to in this time and place?
