The Mystery of God

Not a mathematical problem to be solved but a mystery to be lived! Notoriously difficult to think about and to preach on, this doctrine of the Trinity has its foundations firmly in Scripture. Familiar words push us to the edge of the unfamiliar, into uncharted territory. The doctrine of the Trinity begins to tell us that God is beyond all thought and all imagining. God is truly unknowable. Only when we acknowledge this fundamental truth can we then turn and face Jesus with awe-struck humility and say with Peter, “You are the Christ.”
