Day 10 – The Trinity of God and Me

7 If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”
8 Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” 9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else believe on account of the works themselves. (John 14:7-11 ESV)

This is a confusing piece of dialogue.

Jesus is alluding to a theological concept known as the Trinity. The trinity, is that our God, is one God in three persons. The three persons being: God, the Father, God, the son, and God, the Holy Spirit. The three persons of God, are equal to one another, the Father who begets, the Son who is begotten, and the Holy Spirit who brings about in an inseparable unity of who God is. So, the three persons define who God is, while the one essence of God defines what He is. I know confusing.

Here's the bottom line: Jesus is God and therefore the essence of God can be seen in Jesus. Jesus is in unity with his father, and acts in unity with him to bring about the will of God. The things Jesus does are the result of being one with God, the father. This is important because when you read Revelation 21-22, it ends with God, the Father, crowning his beloved Son in His Spirit as the ruler of the eternal kingdom where the people he loves dwell with him. The people who he loves are sealed by the Spirit of God to receive this eternal inheritance.

Now the implication for us today: does your life reflect the Spirit of God is in you which causes you to live in belief of the Son, and as a result see God, the Father, working? Pray that God's Spirit dwelling in you, would allow you to live in belief of the Son, and witness the working of God in your life.
