The Trinity, All the Fullness of God

II Cor. 13:14: "The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God andthe fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all."

Trinity Sunday is June 11 in 2017. The Trinity warrants some thoughtful, caring meditation. Not primarily logical analysis, but primarily deeply spiritual, deeply loving attention—being fully present, open, and surrendered to both the Unity and the Trinity of God in love.  The medieval classic The Cloud of Unknowing says that God cannot be thought but that he can be known by love. In John 17 , Jesus prayed that we could be one with him and the Father the way that he is one with Father. If Jesus prayed this oneness for us, surely we should make experiencing it a priority. God desires to bring us into the midst of the loving unity of the Trinity. Obviously we need the Holy Spirit in pursuing the fullness of God, all that Trinity Sunday celebrates. I long for God’s fullness for all of us.  Another great prayer on our behalf is found Ephensians 3. In vs. 19, Paul prays “that you [i.e, you and I] may be filled with all the fullness of God.” Let us seek for Paul’s prayer to be “fulfilled” in us.
