verse 14: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.”

When I was a young Christian, I admit that I was a little confused by the Trinity of God. God exists in 3 persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He has existed as one God in three Persons from the beginning (which often shoots down claims that when Jesus was “born” on Earth to Mary, that that was when Jesus came into existence. Jesus was around way before that!) As I’ve heard it counseled to others by preachers, some folks get really caught up in the 3-in-1 aspect of God and lose focus on the true point: that He is God.

I want to share an analogy that worked for me in better understanding this mystery. A preacher put it this way in a sermon. Take the number 1. If you add 1 + 1 + 1, the result is 3. If you multiply 1 X 1 X 1, the result is 1. God is 3 persons in 1 existence. To my fragile mortal mind, it’s incredible; it’s something I continue to marvel at. God is amazing!

Thanks for joining me in this study of Corinthians. It’s my prayer that God has used me to share some insights in His Word that have helped you in some way. Stay tuned to the next blog entry for information on the next study.
