A THREE-DIMENSIONAL LIFE

 
"Make disciples of all the nations. Baptize them in the name 'of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.' " —Matthew 28:19
 

As Christians, we not only believe in Three Persons in one God, but are baptized into, immersed into these Three Persons (Mt 28:19). When we wake up in the morning, the first word on our lips is in praise of the name of Jesus. Because Jesus is the only Way to the Father (Jn 14:6), we soon are thanking the Father for giving us another day, providing breakfast for us, and creating us. Because the Father and Jesus give the Holy Spirit (Jn 15:26), before long the Spirit cries out in our hearts "Abba," that is, "Father," (Rm 8:15) and "Jesus is Lord" (1 Cor 12:3). We pray to the Father through the Son and in the Spirit. We worship the Father and the Son in Spirit and truth (Jn 4:24). As Christians, we live each day in a crossfire of Trinitarian love.

The Father speaks the eternal Word, Who is Jesus (Jn 1:1, 14), Whose words are Spirit and life (Jn 6:63). And we welcome this word in our hearts (Jas 1:21). The Father speaks the Truth; Jesus is the Truth (Jn 14:6); "the Spirit is Truth" (1 Jn 5:6). And we do and speak the truth in love (Eph 4:15). God is Love (1 Jn 4:16). The Father and the Son eternally love Each Other, and the eternal Fruit of this love is the Spirit. We live in this love (Jn 15:10). We live in the Trinity and the Trinity in us (see Jn 6:56; 14:17; 14:23). To us Christians, life means the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (see Phil 1:21).

 
Prayer: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I give my life to You. I live for, in, through, and with You alone.
Promise: "Know that I am with you always, until the end of the world!" —Mt 28:20
Praise: "Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be."
