Just this past Sunday I gave the sermon at our church, as our pastor was on vacation. It was Trinity Sunday in the United Methodist Church, so as I studied more about the Trinity in preparation for my sermon, I was reminded just how active the Trinity is in our lives on a daily basis. But oftentimes, we don’t think about that or pay attention. So, I thought why not share parts of my sermon in this week’s episode? So, here we are. I pray it encourages you and inspires you on your own adventure with God.
I’m a part of one of the small groups at my church called Soul Sisters. We are a group of women who gather to grow closer to God, to encourage one another, and to be in community. We’ve been meeting off and on for almost four years. One question we ponder often when we gather is, “where have we seen God in our lives recently?”
So, I ask you this question today. Where have you seen God in your life recently?
I consider my life one big adventure with God.
Think about it… sometimes He takes us to high mountain top places, and we marvel at what He allows us to experience. At other times He leads us through the valley, where we cling to Him for dear life because we can’t find our way out on our own. But no matter if we’re on the mountain or in the valley, or anywhere in between, we know as believers in Jesus Christ, we are never alone on this adventure with God.
I’ve heard Christians attempt to explain the Trinity by saying God reveals Himself in three ways, sometimes as the Father, sometimes as the Son, and sometimes as the Holy Spirit. I’ve also heard others say the Trinity is like an orange (the fruit, the juice, and the peel). But God doesn’t change personalities and I’m sorry, but He isn’t like an orange.
But I will say this. There is only one true God. The God of the Bible. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, which make up the Trinity, are the same God, but are different Persons. And all three are active in the lives of those who are followers of Jesus Christ.
For as long as I can remember, I knew God existed. I share, though, how I didn’t fully understand who God, Jesus, nor the Holy Spirit was in my young faith.
For years God was an impersonal, impractical, and inaccessible deity in my life.
Until one evening in April 1991 when everything changed.
