The Bible clearly teachers that God is three persons in one being. We call this the Trinity. Yet this teaching is very difficult for us to understand. In Job chapter 11 we read:
Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? (Job 11:7)
Do you want a God you can fully comprehend? I’m gonna suggest that you need a God beyond your comprehension.
There are times in our lives where we are totally powerless. Our life is such a wreck. We are facing such a huge obstacle. Maybe disease or financial ruin. And we pray to God for help. Do you want a God who is limited to what you can comprehend is possible?
No you don’t.
You want a God who can work a miracle. Who can do something that’s beyond your imagination. You want to God that you can’t fathom. Or let’s say you’ve messed up and you’ve hurt the people around you and you’re filled with guilt. You can’t forgive yourself and yet you need a God who can forgive you. You need a God who can be more merciful than anything you can imagine. You need a God that you can’t fully comprehend.
And that God is the trinity. Three persons in one divine being. And that Triune God has demonstrated the greatness of his mercy because God the Son became man, suffered, and died so that he could forgive all of your sins. God has worked a great miracle overcoming the obstacle of your sin so that you, a sinner, can be with this righteous God in heaven forever.
Yes you need a God that is beyond your comprehension. You need the Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
