BCL Grow: The Trinity — Luke 4:18
Luke 4:18 (God)
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed.” — Luke 4:18
“The Father speaks, and on his Breath his Word is heard. It all reveals what this God is truly like. The Spirit is the one through whom the Father loves, blesses and empowers his Son. The Son goes out from the Father by the Spirit. Hence Jesus is known as “the Anointed One”…for he is the one supremely anointed with the Spirit.” Michael Reeves, Delighting in the Trinity: An Introduction to the Christian Faith, p. 30.
3 Steps to Take
Ponder: God is one God in three persons. How often do you consider all three persons in the Trinity? Think of ways each person in the Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) relates to each other and you. For example, the Father loves his Son and sent him to save his people, the Son willingly sacrificed his life for his people and proclaimed the good news to them, the Holy Spirit strengthened Christ in his mission and unites believers to Christ.
Remember: God is one and is not divided in purpose or work. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are always involved together as they create, sustain, and nurture life in the believer.
Rejoice: You are important to God. All three persons of the Trinity are actively involved in a personal way in your life. You are loved and cared for by a powerful God who has spared no expense for your spiritual blessedness.
