I’ve been trying to get a better picture of who God is, and how He interacts within the Trinity. It’s a concept that is difficult to fathom, and even more difficult to explain. Today, I found a new way of thinking about it while I was praying.
Imagine God in the only way we can, the way we know. We know that God created us in His own image (Genesis 1:27).
God the Father is the brain, the Creator of all things great and small. From the smallest atoms floating in space, to the supergalaxies and supernovas, black holes. Mountains, with their vein-like lava flowing deep beneath their weighty stone, trees, with their vein-like water feeding each leaf, and us. With our own brains and flesh warring against our spirits. He is the power, the brawn, the muscle and the might.
Jesus, the Son of God, is the heart. The man who loved and taught and healed and vindicated. He was beaten, torn, broken, bruised, stabbed, stripped, and forsaken. All for the sake of LOVE.
The Holy Spirit is the soul. The Spirit moves and breathes life into dry bones, brings comfort like refreshing water, and empowers us to move as well.
We, the humble believers on earth, are the body. We physically go and do what the brain tells us to do. We have the blood of the Son pumping through our veins, our skin, our hearts. We speak with His voice, we hear with His ears, we touch with His hands and go with His feet.
How amazing that we are His body, that we are part of His great image. How humbling.
