A happy and rewarding year 2014 to all!
Man a Tri-Personal Being
May I suggest a resolution that’s out of this world and will be the basic impetus for a rewarding year before you? The most basic and pivotal knowledge man can have is to understand God is Trinitarian. God exists and fills all of existence, both physical and material, spiritual and metaphysical, with and in His Tri-Personal Love bursting forth from the Father, Son, and Spirit. In their Loving Triune relationship, He brings us into His existence to experience the Trinitarian Life. Man, in his human existence, lives a “solitary” life with an equally ‘solitary’ worldview he inherited from the fall of Adam. Jesus changed all that when He came as the Immanuel to take our humanity into the Triune Godhead, thus becoming Savior and Mediator of mankind.
Man, a Tri-Personal Being Made in the Image of The Trinity
Like an atom (the basis of all matter), life relies upon its triune particles of protons, electrons and neutrons. And this triune template can be proven in all of creation, why, because the universe and this earth is the handiwork of the God who is Himself Tri-Personal in His existence. He made everything to reflect His Triune image, including man. He exists in Loving relationship with each other and desires to share His Triune Being of Love with mankind whom He has created in His likeness.
Three-Dimensional Vs One-Dimensional
In Christian faith, God has given believers the third person of the Trinity, the Spirit, to live with man (believer) forever so He can bring the ‘Triune Life’ to man. Jesus said, “Unless you are born anew of water and the Spirit you cannot enter the Kingdom of God (experience the Triune Life)” (John 3:5). You have heard me use this term often – ‘Triune Life’ throughout my previous blog posts. In its simplest form it means to live with a third-party in one’s life. It means to live a three-dimensional ‘Triune Life’ instead of man’s one-dimensional ‘solitary’ life. It means to live and exist in the very Trinitarian Life of God through and in Christ His Son.
Just as physical life as we know it cannot exist without the atom’s threefold elements, so can’t man truly live and fulfill his destiny unless he lives God’s ‘Triune Life’ in the power of the Spirit. He may exist in chemical form, but he is dead in true-life form. Paul says it like this, that we “lay a foundation so that we may take hold of the life that is truly life” (1Tim.6:19, emphasis added).
Triune Template the Success Template
So, in all you do in 2014, enlist your third-party “Friend” and “Helper” who is the Spirit into your relationships to make it a successful year. (John 14:15-17) And be surprised by the miracles He will bring into your life. Remember, no relationship can be fostered unless there is one or more persons, at least two. But three is the template of success. Not any threefold relationship which remains “solitary” at its foundation, but divinely Triune with its core in the Tri-Personal Being of God. In short, this is the miraculous life we have been made to participate with and in Christ.
May the Spirit orchestrate all your three-dimensional relationships, and may you have a genuine new beginning, in 2014.
