The Trinity-Mystery and Reality

The Trinity, though a mystery, is a theological reality revealed through the pages of Scripture.  We see the Trinity at work in:

Creation
Genesis 1:1-2, 1:26-27; John 1:1-3, Hebrews 1:2, I Corinthians 8:6

Salvation
I Peter 1:1-2, John 6:44, 15:26, 16:8, Ephesians 4:30

Church Life
I Corinthians 12:4-7, 11-12, 18, 24, 27

Giving of Scripture
Hebrews 2:2-4, II Peter 1:19-20

The Ministry of Christ
Matthew 3:13-4:1

We do serve and worship a triune God, not three gods, or one god who manifests himself in three different ways; but a God who is Father, Son, and Spirit all at once, for all time. The footprints of the Trinity are all through the Scriptures.  Some are more visible than others, but there are many which can be found by those with a nose for the truth.

The Trinity... Mystery? Yes!...Reality? Yes!...Which should cause us all to worship with awe and wonder, because there is truly no other god like Him.
