Three in One
There are three witnesses in heaven: the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit, and these three are One. (1 JOHN 5:7)
Today’s verse speaks of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—which we know as the Holy Trinity. Though the verse doesn’t use the term Son, it refers to Jesus as “the Word,” but we know from John 1 that Jesus and the Word are one and the same.
When we think of the Trinity, we must remember that they are three, and yet they are One. This does not compute for us mathematically, but it is true according to Scripture. By having the Holy Spirit living in us, we also have the Father and the Son living in us.
This is a wonderful reality. It is too awesome to explain. We must simply believe it with our hearts. Don’t try to understand it. Be like a little child and just believe it because the Bible says it: The entire Godhead—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—lives inside you and me and every born-again believer who has accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord (see Colossians 2:9–10).
This truth should make us bold, fearless, and aggressive in a balanced way. We should believe we can do whatever we need to do in God’s plan for our lives because the Holy Trinity equips us. He gives us everything we need and more. God loves you, is with you all the time, and has a good plan for your life. Through His presence, you are equipped to do whatever you need to do in life.
God’s word for you today: Face this day boldly because God has already been where you are going and He has prepared the way.
