Make Your Faith Effective By Understanding the Purpose of the Trinity


​Many Christians experience a humdrum faith. This results in feeling remorse about ignoring Jesus, whom the Father sent into the world to share in our humanity and ultimately die for our sins. When we heard the gospel of our salvation, and believed in Jesus as Lord, the Father sent the Holy Spirit to enable us to live holy and pleasing to God. That’s exciting. Yet, many Christians have lost interest in their Savior because they haven’t consumed the God-breathed scriptures. One might say, ‘I read the Bible, but it seems like a chore.’ Well, we Christians need to approach the Word of God with the expectancy of learning all about God. Along with that, all of us should read the Bible with critical thinking, making a deliberate inquiry, about the reason why God exists as the Trinity. We can break free from a humdrum faith by learning about the Trinity, and devoting our lives to their purpose. Let’s start: the Trinity is known as one God because the three eternal members are singularly focused on the redemptive plan for mankind, and this plan requires three persons acting both individually and simultaneously. So, let us live effectively for the Trinity’s purpose, and tell people there’s salvation in no other name, but only in the one who saves us from our sins, the Lord Jesus. Everyone who doesn’t believe this is our mission field, meaning our opportunity to tell them the Gospel. Remember, God works all things according to the counsel of his will, which means the Trinity has placed each Christian precisely where they want us. There’s religious people all around us, but they don’t know the true nature of God. They don’t have assurance of salvation, nor do they have a relationship with our loving Savior. Let’s share the truth with them. God isn’t beyond knowing because he has made himself known to us through the Bible. Let’s tell someone about the redemptive purpose of the Trinity.
