Every since I was a little girl, I remember my pastor preaching about the role of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I had trouble understanding what that meant. What is this Trinity? What does it mean “they are three in one”? When life’s trial presents itself, who do I cry out to? This has been on my heart.
The Son’s devotion led him to the cross
Whether you call yourself a Christian or not you have heard the story of how Jesus died for us. Jesus knew the only way to save us from eternal suffering was to provide death with a permanent sacrifice. Jesus went to death and offered himself because he knew death’s hold on him would only be for a short while. He emptied our cups filled with anger that causes us to be abusive to the ones who love us. He defeated the hold some feel that leads them to cheat on their spouses or prostitute themselves in search of love and companionship. We can now be free from shame and self-hatred.
The Holy Spirit is always present
Think of your favourite coffee mug or water bottle that you would never leave on the counter at home. This mug goes everywhere with you because it keeps your drinks at just the right temperature. Our lives are just like that mug. You would never make your coffee in the morning and put it in a dirty cup, it must be clean.
An empty cup allows the Spirit of God comes in as it fills the empty spaces with God’s purpose for our lives. It replaces feelings of fear, loss, anger, loneliness, depression, sadness and all those sins that sent Jesus to the cross to die in our place. All the hardship and stress we suffer through were never meant to be part of our lives. These things were never apart of God’s plan for us. His plan for us consists of a loving a fulfilling relationship with your spouse and family.
He wants us to find a job where we will be respected for our contributions and ideas. Therefore, we should always be walking in self-love and respect because we know we are valuable. He wants peace and joy to consistently flow through our home and with family. A desire in our hearts to bring joy to those around us and not pain. Psalm 139:14 says “for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, and marvellous are thy works”. Are you not wonderful and marvellous and beautiful?
The Father’s love for us is comparable to no other
Our father, the conductor of the mystical trio. The one who holds the plan for our lives in place. The one whose love for us was strong and perfect. He found a way for us to empty our cups filled on lies, sin and shame and replaced it with a beautiful melody. A melody that will make your heart fill with joy and make you smile. That is the purpose of the three in one: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Allow these three to empty your cup and fill it with God’s purpose for your life. Allow them to play your beautiful melody
