Sermon Notes

GBUThey say “things happen in threes.” Have you heard that? Today in the
church calendar is Trinity Sunday – where we celebrate that we have one God
in three distinct persons – Father, Son & Holy Spirit. As the Athanasian
Creed states – not three gods, but one God! Because of this mystery of the
Trinity, three is considered a significant number in the Bible. This is
perhaps the root of some of the intrigue with the number three. In The
Story we have just finished the period of the united kingdom of Israel. For
this period of approximately 120 years, Israel was united under three
successive kings. But following that third monarch – Solomon, the kingdom
of Israel was torn in two. Even in the midst of this foolish behavior,
however, God remains faithful to His people.
