Sermon about The Triune God

The sermon on Sunday the 12th November was about the Triune God, the Trinity. This is an excerpt from that sermon.

What is Trinity?

What does it mean that God is three-in-one? The Bible talks about how God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit work together.

If we read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, we will not find a single explicit direct statement of the doctrine of the Trinity. Nowhere in the Bible will we find a statement that says God is three persons composed of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, but by implication, the doctrine of the Trinity is found throughout the Old and New Testament together. It will be very helpful to begin with by saying that the doctrine of the Trinity does not mean that there are three Gods. There are not three Gods. The Father, Son and the Holy Spirit is one God.

Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord” God speaks through Moses before the people goes into the promised land. This message is repeated again and again throughout the Old Testament and emphasized because at that time the nations around Israel had multitudes of gods, variety of gods. Our Lord Jesus says the same thing in John 10:30 “I and the Father are one.” Also His disciple James makes this point clearly in James 2:19, “You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder.”

There is one God, and in His innermost being, He exists in three persons. Our very concept of person is an individual, so we say a person here, a person there, another person there. Our language though very beautiful and rich, is inadequate to express the Trinity properly.

This whole sermon is about 53 minutes. If you want to know more, listen to the sermon by preached by our brother Alexandru posted on YouTube
