Glory of the Trinity
Three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word,
and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
1 John 5:7
The more I read my Bible, the more I believe in the triune God!
With the prophet Isaiah, I am stirred by the vision of the heavenly creatures, the seraphim around the throne of God, engrossed in their worship and praise.
I have often wondered why the rabbis and saints and hymnists of the olden times did not come to the knowledge of the Trinity just from the seraphims’ chorus: “Holy! Holy! Holy!”
I am a Trinitarian—I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth. I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, begotten of Him before all ages. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified.
Isaiah was an astonished man. He could only manage this witness: “Mine eyes have seen the King” (6:5). Only the King of glory can reveal Himself to the willing spirit of a man so that an Isaiah, or any other man or woman, can say with humility but with assurance, “I know Him!”
Lord, the modern world has all but packed You into a small box and placed You in the corner closet—accessing You only for occasional holidays or special family events. But in reality You are a great God, and I bow before You today.
