Focus Readings Psalm 8, Romans 5:1-5 b. John 16:12-15

Today is Trinity Sunday. Sometimes people say that the doctrine of the Trinity is an abstract bit of theology invented by theologians. The truth is that it was actually the way the early church experienced God. They knew God as the Father in Heaven, God as one of them who they met face to face in Jesus, and as the inner witness of the Spirit - God with them. This is what is recorded for us in the Bible. Later it was written into hymns, songs, creeds and works of theology. More importantly this is still the experience we have of God today. As we live life in general, look at the glory of creation, as we pray and read the Bible, serve those in need, and join in worship we have a sense of God. For most this is a sense that God is beyond us, but at the same time became one of us, beside us in Jesus. Yet also at the same time we have a sense that God is with us or in us. God is three yet one.
