Never Stop Learning


Although we'll never fully understand the concept of a Triune God, we shouldn't stop learning as much as we can.

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. Ephesians 1:17

When you begin a meaningful relationship with someone, you don’t say, “I don’t really want to get to know you. I don’t want to know your essence.” That would be ridiculous! Knowing that person’s personality and who they are is what keeps the relationship vital, personal and intimate.

The same is true, only on an infinitely and eternally greater level, with God. The more we understand about God, the greater our intimacy with him becomes. And the greater our intimacy with God becomes, the greater our life change through him will be.

We must, though, recognize one thing: we will never fully understand who God is. The Trinity—God being one in essence and three in persons—is a concept that our finite humanity will never be able to fully grasp. But that does not mean that we should give up on learning as much as we can.

Learning, being a disciple, is a decision followed by a process. The decision to be a Trinitarian, to study and grow to understand the Trinity, starts with believing that God the Father sent the Son to die for our sins and to be raised again. It continues by believing that God the Son ascended back to the Father and then sent Holy Spirit. Once we receive the total package, once we step over the line and accept who God really is, we become tethered to the Trinity.

Commit yourself to getting to know God. Once you do, once you decide to learn as much as you can, your relationship with him will continue to grow and thrive. You will fall madly in love with the Trinity and you will understand who God is—you will see what it truly means to Tri-God.
