A Wednesday Watch Message
from Pastor Ken
3 Aces and 2 Kings
In this season we journey into the profound mystery of the Holy Trinity, an idea that lies at the heart of our Christian faith. The Holy Trinity reveals to us the nature of God as three distinct persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—united in perfect harmony and love. It is a concept that challenges our finite understanding and invites us into a deeper relationship with the divine.
The Holy Trinity is not a mathematical equation to be solved or a riddle to be deciphered. Rather, it is an invitation to encounter the living God who reveals Himself in three distinct yet inseparable persons. It is through this revelation that we come to understand the fullness of God's love, grace, and redemption.
The Father, the first person of the Trinity, is the source of all things. It is from Him that all creation springs forth. He is the loving Father who cares for His children, guiding and protecting them with unwavering love and wisdom.
The Son, Jesus Christ, the second person of the Trinity, is the Word made flesh. He took on human form, dwelling among us, to reveal the Father's love and redeem humanity. Through His life, death, and resurrection, Jesus bridges the gap between humanity and divinity, offering us salvation and eternal life.
The Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, is the divine presence among us. The Spirit is the comforter, the guide, and the empowerer who works within us, drawing us closer to God and transforming our lives. The Spirit's role is to reveal truth, convict us of sin, and empower us to live as children of God.
The Holy Trinity is a mystery that surpasses all understanding. It invites us to embrace paradox and recognize that our human language and concepts are inadequate to fully comprehend the infinite nature of God. However, we are not called to unravel this mystery. Rather, we are invited to enter into a playful yet Holy relationship with God, experiencing His love and grace in our lives.
As we encounter the Holy Trinity, we are invited to live in unity and love. Just as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit exist in perfect communion, we are called to Holy Communion to reflect this unity in our relationships with God and one another. Our communities should reflect our attempt of love, mutual respect, and a shared commitment to the mission of God.
As we embark on this journey of discovery, may we find ourselves drawn into the mystery, and may our encounters with God transform us from within. May the Holy Trinity be our constant source of inspiration and joy. Let us lay our cards down and see that God is playing for keeps; the keeper of our souls. +P Ken
