Bible Text: John 16:12-15, Romans 5:1-11 | Rev. David A. Douthett
Today is Trinity Sunday when Christians celebrate God revealed Three-in-One and One-in-Three. We have come to know God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, co-eternal, being of one nature and substance, and yet unique. God is in relationship and community with Godself.
The texts for today are the last of Jesus' promises to send the Holy Spirit to the disciples after his passion, resurrection, and ascension, and Paul making the case that we are set right with God by Christ, and we know it because we have been given the Holy Spirit (as promised). Therefore we don't fear God's wrath and can endure affliction. That sounds like something we could all stand these days.
