The Most Holy Trinity

Matt. 28: 16 to 20:

Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen.

This is the Sunday of the Most Holy Trinity, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Jesus is with us, always even unto the end of the world. So let us follow God’s commandments and grow our congregation.

Rom. 8: 14 to 17:

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also glorified together.

We have not received the spirit of bondage, but the spirit of adoption. This is what makes God our father. This is what makes us feel being taken care of by the Almighty! The Spirit beareth witness with our spirit, that we are children of God. We shall feel it in our spirit when we follow God and when we would offend Him! When we feel we are right with God, then we are children of God then we are adopted and we shall know in our hearts that we are following God’s command, not by bondage, but by living with Our Father according to His Will through His Love.

2. Cor. 3: 4 to 6: And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward: Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency [is] of God; Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

The letter killeth but the spirit giveth life! So let us follow the Spirit in the Love of God and let us know that Jesus will be with us always, even unto the end of the world, Amen!
