THE THREE R'S

 
"The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all!" —2 Corinthians 13:13
 

When God revealed to Moses that His name was "Lord" and that He was "a merciful and gracious God, slow to anger and rich in kindness and fidelity" (Ex 34:6), "Moses at once bowed down to the ground in worship" (Ex 34:8). Moses immediately knew that when God gives greater revelation of Who He is, this is an event of great significance.

There are 3 R's in life: revelation, relationship, and responsibility. When the Holy Spirit of Pentecost further reveals to us the depths of God (see 1 Cor 2:11), that God is Trinity, all relationships are dramatically changed. Before the Trinity was revealed, we were God's people. After the Trinity was further revealed through Jesus' Paschal mystery, we can be God's family, even His adopted sons and daughters. Moreover, before the Trinity was revealed, marriage included polygamy, concubines, and divorce. When we began to realize that God  is Trinity, Family, and unconditional Love (1 Jn 4:8, 16), monogamy was obviously the essence of marriage, divorce was superseded, and marriage and family became a sacrament of Trinitarian love. Finally, these transformed, Trinitarian relationships are so beautiful and life-giving that we have the responsibility to tell everyone that the revelation of the Trinity can raise every relationship to a new level of love.

We have been baptized into the Trinity, that is, we are immersed in Trinitarian love. Let us live accordingly.

 
Prayer: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, You are our Life, Love, and Family. We are all Yours.
Promise: "God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him may not die but may have eternal life." —Jn 3:16
Praise: Glory be to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit now and forever.
