DEVOTIONAL: READ HEBREWS 1:3

In order to see Jesus clearly, we must think rightly about Him theologically. Jesus exists as a member of the Trinity. The word Trinity is the word we use to describe that there is only one true God, existing as a single being, yet comprised of three persons who are equal in every way. They are distinct in their tasks and relations to humanity. The three persons of the Trinity are God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The teaching of the Trinity can be broken down into three statements: God is three persons; each person is fully God; there is one God.

This attribute of God is mysterious, and different than any other thing in the known world. While the word “Trinity” isn’t in our Bible, there are implications of it throughout the Scriptures. The Trinity is unique, profound, and difficult to explain. Yet, it is necessary to understand for sound doctrine. One theologian said it this way, “Try to explain the Trinity and you will lose your mind; but try to deny it and you will lose your soul.”

It is absolutely critical to see Jesus as divine through the lens of this doctrine. Only a divine being is capable of supernatural signs and wonders. Only a divine being is capable of living a perfectly sinless life. Only a divine being could bear the full wrath of our sin. Only a divine being is worthy of our trust, faith, worship, and prayer.

Jesus, the Son of God, is fully divine! He is equal to the Father in His being, yet Jesus is distinct from the Father in His role. Hebrews 1:3 says, “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.”

REFLECTION

Why is the doctrine of the Trinity difficult to fully grasp or explain? How would you explain it to someone?

How would you explain the different roles of each member of the Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?

Why is it critical to believe that Jesus is fully divine and not just another human?

DISCUSSION

Have you had any conversations about Jesus lately?

PRAYER

Dear Jesus, seated at the right hand of the Father, You are the true and exact expression of His nature. We believe that You sustain everything by Your powerful Word.

Lord, You are beyond comprehension! Being divinely distinct from Your creation, no comparison can be fully adequate. You are the One, true God. Lord, give me understanding, a love for You, and faith to trust in You.

Thank You, Jesus, for meeting us here on earth. Thank You, Jesus, for dwelling among us so that we may see the true and right way to live. Thank You, Jesus, for dying, bearing our sin so that we might be free.

Jesus, we acknowledge that You are the rightful ruler and authority in our lives. Jesus, teach us to trust and follow You in all things. Amen.
