Man, I really love reading a good mystery! I get so involved with the plot, trying to figure out the end and enjoying every word along the way.
Every year or so, I need to teach or re-teach a lesson to kids about a GREAT mystery that is in the Bible. I actually enjoy this challenge; it is a doozy!
It all started a few years back after baptizing one of our members. When I baptize, I always say, “I baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.” Well, one of the other kids asked what that means.
This started a discussion… Oh boy, did it ever!
As simple as it may sound, the idea of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, is not that easy for kids to understand, nor is it for some of us.
It is a mystery to them how God can be three, yet one. HMMMMMMM… You get the mystery. It seems easy to understand, but is it?
I use various object lessons and demonstrations to help them understand. One lesson involves an egg.
There are 3 parts of an egg, but it is all still one egg. The shell, the white, and the yolk make up an egg. Viola! THE TRINITY EXPLAINED! lol; I wish it were that simple with kids… They have millions of questions.
During Christmas, we really see the magnitude of the Trinity becoming tangible.
God shows Himself as Man. -a baby in a manger. Wow! He must really want me to know Him!
Let’s commit to knowing Him more in 2020.
