Then Jesus came to them and said:
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
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…

My God is my Triune God – One God in three person’s.

The Apostles Creed:
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
the Creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:
Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into hell.
The third day He arose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven and
sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy *catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.
The word “catholic” refers not to the Roman Catholic Church, but to the universal church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
This is the oldest of many Christian Creeds.
And as A.W. Tozer said:
“That however the different creeds may have differed on minor matters,
the doctrine of the Trinity bound them together.”
Our Church fathers found it necessary to create creeds
that captured exactly what was the most important,
absolute center of our Christian belief.
And interwoven throughout these creeds is the sovereign fabric of the Trinity.
It was Jesus’ claim of being part of the Trinity that was the reason He was crucified.
He claimed “… to be equal to God.”
We are immediately challenged — not with our intellect, nor our reason-
but with our faith to embrace the truth of the Trinity.
In reality the truth of the Trinity isn’t unreasonable nor anti-intellectual
but it does take revelation that comes when the Holy Spirit enlightens our minds.
Then faith owns this foundation of foundations of our Christian belief.
For our Creed is the Gospel of our Faith and
our Creed is the basis of the New and Everlasting Covenant
signed by our God and Father with the Blood of His Son,
our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
This is what the saints of old have passed on to us.
This is the place where all truth of scripture rests,
that our God is a Triune God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
One God in three persons:
Always in Unity,
Always in Harmony,
Co-equal with one another.
Yes – it is likely that our Heavenly Father led in the Creation.
And it was our Lord Jesus who was the front person in our redemption.
And yes it is the Holy Spirit who shows Himself the most in our regeneration.
But remember they always move in unison on all matters.
Another important point is that in scripture, when Jesus walked here on earth,
He was 100% God and 100% man and when He spoke to His heavenly Father,
it was the Son of Man and our Father God speaking to each other.
The Son of Man could identify with my weakness.
The Son of Man died on the cross to save me from my sins.
The Son of Man came to reveal the Father to me.
Remember He said;
…“I and the Father are one.”
This is God the Father,
Jesus, God who is not ashamed to call me His brother,
The Holy Spirit, God who comforts me.
The one God in three persons,
My God is my Triune God!
