Lesson 7

God the Father


There is but one God who exists in three persons. God the Father sent His Son. The Son did the will of the Father and in so doing brought glory to the Father.


The fact that there is one God who exists in Three Persons is difficult to understand. That is evident alone by the Hebrew attempt at structuring the way they wrote God's name in the plural form describing a singular verb or adjective. Yet it is important to understand in order to be able to develop a right relationship with God. Each Person of the Trinity is an infinite being. Man in his finite thinking can only offer finite explanations of how this can be. One way is seen by adding infinity to infinity to infinity. Three infinite things don't just add up to three more infinite things but one infinite thing. Similarly the Three Infinite Persons of the Trinity add up to One Infinite Godhead.

God the Father can only be reached through the Son.


I need to believe in the Son and follow His example of how to live. In so doing I will bring glory to the Father as the Son did.
