It’s time to return to my Poetic Journey through the Book of John. Won’t you join me?
Without God we are dim
Truly stumbling in the dark
Far from His heart.
Till He opens our eyes
And fills us with life
Our spirit is unreceptive
To His glorious light.

The Light (God)
The Light shines on in the darkness [a], and the darkness did not understand it or overpower it or appropriate it or absorb it [and is unreceptive to it].
a. the world immersed in sin: all that stands in opposition to God and biblical truth.John 1:5 The Amplified Version
Our Three in One God
Like the facets of an engagement ring is the godhead.
It is God the Father, who draws us to Himself and who sent His Son Jesus Christ as our Redeemer and Healer. It is Christ our Savior who captivates us with His love, compassion, and countless worthy attributes. If we have seen (or known) Jesus, we have seen the Father. For the two are one. Jesus was not only sent, but He also chose to leave His throne in Heaven to make His Father’s will, His own death, resurrection, and future return known to mankind. Through Jesus’ blood (His sacrifice for our sins) He cleasens us from our impurity. He is our creator, our God and the keeper of our souls; our Shephard, King, brother and friend; our God is also our husband.
It is the Holy Spirit who we recieve as our helper (a gift) when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, who fills us (or dwells in us). He is the seal (our validation) that we belong to God. He will raise us to eternal life as He raised Jesus from His tomb. He teaches us, convicts us, guides us, gives us understanding, wisdom, power and spiritual gifts. He helps us when we are weak, and intercedes for us in prayer. He also comforts us in our distress so that we can comfort others in their distress, and He reminds us of all that Jesus has said.
Did I forget anything? 🧐🤔 Oh, He makes us able to bear good fruit. These are gifts of the spirit. (Galatians 5:22-25)
Can you think of anything else we can say about our 3 in one God? Feel free to leave a comment. I would love to know. ❤❤❤
