One God. Three Persons?

#04: The Godhead, Trinity, Triune, Deity, whatever term you use, wrapping our head around three people in one can be a bit confusing. In this episode we explore why it is important for us to know each person of the Trinity and how our earthly family dynamics can impact how we view the Godhead. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Dr. Scott Horrell of Dallas Theological Seminary says, “Understanding who God is will define why you and I exist, who we are as persons, and how we may most be fulfilled individually and in relation to other persons, the natural world, and most of all our Creator.”
  • Dr. Scott Horrell of Dallas Theological Seminary says, “Understanding who God is will define why you and I exist, who we are as persons, and how we may most be fulfilled individually and in relation to other persons, the natural world, and most of all our Creator.”
  • Jesus is God just as the Father is God, not lesser or greater. He performs miracles that only God can do. He forgives sins, and He accepts worship. In every interaction with creation, Jesus reveals Himself as the Son of God.
  • The Holy Spirit is the “other” Counselor with Jesus. He possesses all the divine attributes of God. He is no greater and no lesser than the Father or the Son. He has proceeded from both the Father and the Son for all eternity.
  • Our earthly family dynamics can have an influence on how we view the Trinity.

Resources Mentioned in Episode:

The descriptions of each person in the Trinity came from the YouVersion Bible plan, “God In Three Persons: Embracing the Trinity.”

The summer of my senior year in high school, I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. As I approached my twenties, I was wondering what my purpose was and what I should be doing. As I entered my 30s, I felt as if God was calling me to entrepreneurship and started my own company.

After a few years of running my company, I started searching again for my purpose. I was working 7 days a week, 15-hours a day. I started questioning, "is this all there is?" I felt like I had missed the secret to life. Little did I know, I had.

After over a decade of running my company at the same pace and with two failed pregnancies, I hit my knees and begged God to help. I knew along the way I had left Him out of the equation of my life.

God did send me someone an amazing mentor who taught me how to operate my business by God's grace rather than my grind. In fact, I could operate every area of my life this way. One key was by co-partnering with God.

It was during this time I learned to tap in to the power of the Holy Spirit that resides in followers of Christ. This was the missing secret to life I had been searching for all those years. Now with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, I can experience His fruits, love, joy, peace, gentleness, kindness, faithfulness, goodness, patience and self-control.

God has called me to share my experience with others so they can tap in to this same resource in every area of life. Join me each week on Spirit Led Life as we explore tapping in to the power of the Holy Spirit residing in followers of Christ.
