GO TO THE SOURCE…THE TRIUNE GOD
Try explaining the Trinity to a child. “Well, it’s like an apple that is skin, flesh and seeds all in one. Make sense?”
Perhaps a bit too simplistic, but explaining that our God is three parts all in one isn’t easy. Even to an adult.
Let’s take some time to look at the role each member of the Trinity plays in our lives. What a powerful Resource we have as believers. That’s why we are instructed to trust in the Lord and not to lean on our own understanding. We often try to be wise in our own eyes, but true wisdom comes from above. The Lord wants us to lean into Him in every circumstances we face. That’s why inquiring of the Lord is so important to our well-being.

Deep wisdom, knowledge, power, revelation, spiritual truths, and the mind of Christ…all available to us if we inquire. Why depend on self or others when everything we need for life and godliness is found in HIM! Let’s end this study with a recap of a verse from last week’s lesson taken from the Message Bible. “ALL THE RICHEST TREASURES OF WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE ARE EMBEDDED IN THAT GREAT MYSTERY, JESUS CHRIST, AND NO WHERE ELSE.” (Colossians 2:3). So remember your Source…and keep inquiring.
