On the Sunday following Pentecost we celebrate the Holy Trinity. On this day we are confronted with who God is through what God does. He is the mighty God, the Three in One, before whom we sing “Holy, Holy, Holy.” He is the Creator of all things. He is also the Christ, the Savior who comes in flesh to redeem His fallen creation and restore the lost to Himself. He is also the Spirit who sanctifies, blowing when and where He wills, breathing life into those dead in trespass and sin and bestowing faith and perfect love where fear once lived. It all is expressed in the God who so loved the world—the most familiar and beloved Bible passage. Here, in this Gospel in a nutshell, is the Triune God at work for us and our salvation.
