Trinity Sunday: The Fullness Of God
Readings: Genesis 1:1-2:3
2 Corinthians 13: 5-14
Matthew 28: 16-20
Trinity Sunday is the proclamation of the fullness of God. We begin by reading Genesis. In the very beginning, God established everything. He made everything out of nothing. He made all things sacred and it was good. We have little respect for what God has done. We’ve lost sight of the good in God’s creation. And because we do not respect the things of God, we have also lost our respect for man.
God divided the expanse of the waters and made earth. Let the land produce vegetation and seed-bearing fruits and trees according to their various kinds. In the Gospel Christ gave instructions to the disciples to go up to the mountains, away from the city where there is more clarity, where there is fresh air, no pollution, and where it is quiet. Genesis should set the course of what our lives should be. When the disciples saw Him, they worshipped Him. But some doubted. Today, this is happening in our churches. There are doubters. We should be worshippers. Our focus should be on God. Unfortunately, our confidence is still in man and so is our focus.
Christ came to restore creation. One of the first things He said was, “All authority has been given to Me, in heaven and on earth.” Ephesians 1:21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come.
Why then do we put our trust in that which has lesser authority than God. Total authority belongs to God. The complete authority is in Christ. Even the angels are subject to Him. Trinity Sunday is the fullness of God, already established, already completed. Christ then commissions them to go into the world with the power of the Holy Spirit, even to the ends of the earth. All authority has been given to us. We think we have been beaten and bruised by the enemy when we should not be bowing down to the enemy. We have authority over the enemy. He is a leech. We allow him to take away the power that is in us to use against ourselves. Christ is in us. All power and authority is in us. Why do we give in to the enemy’s deception? Why are we allowing him to steal this authority and power from us? Galatians 3:27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
He filleth us all in all. He made a promise to us: “I will not leave you, I will not forsake you.”This is His commandment to His people. It is what the Trinity is about. The fullness of the Godhead. Deuteronomy 32: 11-12
“As an eagle stirs up its nest, Hovers over its young, Spreading out its wings, taking them up, Carrying them on its wings, So the LORD alone led him, And there was no foreign god with him.” Like the mother eagle, God allows us to fall and make mistakes. But He swoops us up to let us stand on our own again until we are able to soar up high. Letting us soar up high above our problems. Are we able to stand in the midst of the test? We should test ourselves. We will be judged with what we have been given, not if we’re born again or not. Are we building up the Kingdom or are we tearing it down. Our final test is; greet the brethren with a holy kiss. Do we love our brother? Do we forgive the ones who have offended us? This is the hope we have in Him. The fullness of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He will not leave us. He is our strength. The fullness of God filleth us all in all.
