Taste and See: the living, working God

Trinity Raphael

The Collect for Mass yesterday, Trinity Sunday, speaks of God and his triune mystery.

God our Father, who by sending into the world
the Word of truth and the Spirit of sanctification
made known to the human race your wondrous mystery,
grant us, we pray, that in professing the true faith,
we may acknowledge the Trinity of eternal glory
and adore your Unity, powerful in majesty.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

It is through the mission of the Word and Spirit that God is known to us as triune, Father, Son and Spirit. It is in that service intended to free us from sin and death that something more of the richness and glory of God is made known to us.

We too reveal ourselves in our actions.

  • As what might people know you. from your actions?
  • How much more of you remains hidden/potential but not yet realised?
