The Trinity has existed since Pre-Creation
Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
The Father is the ultimate authority upon the heavens and the Earth. It is through this branch of the Trinity that Creation happened, it is always Him who rules with authority over all the earth. He is also The Judge, and the lawgiver. It is by His standard that all things are judged.
You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.
1 Peter 1:17
Since you call on a Father who judges each man's work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear.
The Son even shows his deference to the authority of the Father. Our responsibility is to show the level of respect that he deserves, and honor him such.
Jesus is our shepherd, our bridegroom, and our savior.
14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. 17 The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. 18 No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is our comforter and conviction, and he empowers us.
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
- This week I will give full authority in my life to God the Father.
- This week I will learn more about Jesus, and His love for me.
- This week, I will listen to the guidance of the Holy Spirit in my life.
