Trinitarian discipleship

The Trinity is a mystery to be contemplated. It is also a life to be lived. To seek the God of Love by imitating the life of Jesus Christ his Son with the help of the Holy Spirit living in me seems simple enough. We sometimes make it complicated when we favour the life of just one Trinitarian Person and use that favouritism to enhance our Christian experience. When I do this my life lacks peace, harmony and unity. Contemplate the Three Persons in One today. Look at what holds them in harmony.

  1. I find it impossible to contemplate the fullness of God. I am overwhelmed or rendered speechless with tiny glimpses of God's ever-loving presence:
    receiving forgiveness when it is not expected;
    piwakawaka dancing as I hang out the washing;
    the gift of a magazine to read;
    a smile from a stranger;
    an affirmation from an unexpected source;
    a line from Scripture empowering and consoling me.
    And because the fullness of God is simply too vast for me to imagine, I contemplate miniscule revelations:
    the Word of God invigorating me;
    the creation of God enlivening me;
    the spirit of God healing me.
    We all respond to knowing we are loved by God in different ways. Perhaps we can treasure this God-given uniqueness and let it enrich our relationship with LOVE, and with each other.
