Pulpit Notes: The Mystery of the Trinity

When it comes right down to it, for me faith is a mystery, a gift.

This coming Sunday, we dive headlong into a mystery no human can fully comprehend except through faith: the glorious mystery we profess in the doctrine of the Trinity—one God in three persons.

We all have probably heard of the Great Commission, recorded in the twenty-eighth chapter of Matthew, in which we read Jesus’ command to His disciples: “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

The Trinity is a mystery we seek to understand through faith—not blind faith, but faith in the power and mystery of how God chooses to reveal God’s self to humanity. We seek to be stewards, as Scripture tells us, of the mysteries of God! May the creating, redeeming, and sustaining comfort of God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—be present in our lives today and always.

Soli Deo Gloria,

Reverend Dr. Conrad C. Sharps
Senior Pastor
