When 1+1+1=1

A missionary from India visited our congregation yesterday.  He offered one of the best explanations of the Trinity I ever heard.  He started by asking how others know what's going on inside your head – what you're thinking, what you're feeling.  It's a mystery, right?  As long as you don't reveal yourself to others, it's impossible for anyone to understand what's on the inside.  Our Father in Heaven sent his only Son in order to reveal himself to us.  And the Son sent us the Holy Spirit to help us get a tiny glimpse of the mystery of who God is.  When you add it all up, 1+1+1=1.  They are three persons but they all add up to one.

Think about what God wants to reveal to you right now.  He wants you to know how great his love is for you.  You will never be able to grasp how much infinite love measures or weighs.  It's a mystery.  But that's how much God loves you.  He sent his only Son to die for you so that you may have new life.  You don't need to solve the mystery of who God is, all you need to do is open your heart and let Him in.  Only He can fill the void inside you.  Try the new math.  Go with Trinity.  You don't need to solve the mystery.  It's even more complicated than the female brain.  Just know that when 1+1+1=1, you have everything you need to live in simple abundance.
