As I look around at the world, I long for being within a functional family unit. Yet, I have not found that. This world is that of dysfunction. For even when God created Adam and Eve, he gave them instructions on not eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. He told them not to eat of that fruit or they surely would die.
For they did out of their own choice, being lured by deceit and craftiness of the enemy.
But God's family of the Trinity is surely a functional family unit-of God being willing to create a world and lose some control over what happens at any given time. Yet part of this mystery is that God is already in control of our planet. I don't really understand how He can do both=except to say that God is all-knowing and He knows what is best. For He needs to provide man some freedom for man so we are not automomous robots as my pastor Dave has mentioned on several occasions during church.
For God was willing to humble himself and become a man and be obedient even to die as this man, Jesus. And God was able to see His son go through this and be alone for a period of three days until His son was resurrected. For everyone knows the roles of the others in this Trinitarian family.
For I long to be like the Trinity=even in one small facet of its existence. And long for insight from readers such as you as to how to make it work so well and encourage the reader to pass this along as we all journey in this walk of Faith this side of Heaven's call.
