The doctrine of the trinity
is a tricky thing to grasp you see
‘cause the maths tells us that one is three
and our brain says no I can’t agree.
But though it’s hard to understand
the Bible’s truth is close at hand
and it shows us in Matthew 3
verse 16 and verse 17 that God, is a trinity.
God is a trinity
three persons He is shown to be
in loving community
He shows us what we ought to be.
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
all are God now don’t you see it.
That God is one and one has three
all working together in unity
Our God, He is, a trinity.
Of course one could quibble whether Matthew 3:17-18 is a “truth close at hand” about the makeup of the ‘godhead.’ Trinitarian theology is a product of the church’s theological reflection over the course of time, and owes much of its genesis to Greek philosophy. Regardless, it holds the treasured position of ‘orthodoxy’ within the church, and should receive our attention as a way that many have experienced the plurality of God through the centuries.
