Three into One will go

"The Trinity" is a somewhat puzzling phenomenon to non-Christians. Christians believe in one God but can be accused to worshiping three!! That is because we say "in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit" in our church services. It's actually quite difficult for US to understand this Trinity with our finite human minds, but the Bible teaches that there is one God who has revealed Himself in three different ways.
Isaiah chapter 44 verse 6 says "I am the first, the last, the only God; there is no other God but me". Then, in the New Testament, John chapter 1 verses 1 and 2 say "Before the world was created the Word already existed; he was with God and he was the same as God. From the very beginning the Word was with God". "The Word" is Jesus Christ. Jesus said that anyone who had seen Him had seen the Father - John chapter 14 verses 8 to 11 - so proving that He was part of God.
The Holy Spirit is God's spirit which comes to live in us when we accept Jesus personally as our Saviour. The Spirit is a "helper" and "comforter". In John chapter 14 verses 16 and 17 and also chapter 15 verse 26 Jesus confirms this. Until we live in Heaven with the Lord we shall never fully understand all the above, but I do know this: I believe in God and in Jesus, and I have the wonderful Holy Spirit dwelling inside me and giving me His help, strength and peace every day.
