Questions to Consider
  1. What did Paul confirm to the Ephesians and the Corinthians?
  2. What was the psalmist's conviction?

Logically necessary

"Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever." (v. 2)

For reading & meditation:
        Psalm 136:1-26

The Trinity is implicit in the whole Bible from the beginning, though it might not be evident to someone unfamiliar with the Book who started reading at Genesis until they had reached the books of the New Testament. Ian Macpherson, in his book The Faith Once Delivered, says that when the island now known as Trinidad was discovered by Columbus, he thought at first it was three islands as all he could see was three hills silhouetted against the sky. However, when he got closer, he found that what he had seen was not three islands at all but just one island. From a distance it looked like three, but close up it was only one. Hence he named the island "Trinidad," Spanish for "Trinity." That is the kind of experience you get when reading the Word of God. At first it seems as if the Bible is talking about three Gods, but as you go deeper into the Scriptures you discover there are not three Gods but one - one God in three Persons. It must be noted though that it is not only in isolated texts that one encounters the doctrine of the Trinity. The very concept of God's love presupposes plurality in the Godhead. Love, to be love, must have an object. Self-love is love's opposite. Since God (as we shall see more closely in a few days' time) is eternal love, He must have had objects of eternal affection. The objects of His affection were the Son and the Spirit. The doctrine of the Trinity, therefore, is not only theologically but logically necessary to an understanding of the nature of the Deity.

Father, help me understand that a being fully comprehended could not be God. In Your unfathomable depths all my thoughts are drowned. Symbolically I remove my shoes, for I sense I stand on holy ground. Amen.
