Me, Myself and I

Trinity means God in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. There has been many debates on the reality and feasibility of the Trinity. Many folks have another idea of trinity. Our culture embraces the trinity of me, myself and I. We are self-driven, self-pleasing, self-absorbed nation. Even way back in the Greek and Egyptian culture, folks worked, thought, and lived according to their religion. It is a false, many gods kind of religion, but they were devoted to it nonetheless. When it came to families, they consulted the gods of fertility. When they ate, they thanked the gods of harvest. Every move they made, three times a day, was devoted to the many gods that controlled their lives. Today, we have gotten away from referring to a Higher Power, even false ones, in order to please self. Our natural instincts have become front and center in determining our actions and way of life. If we want to drink, do drugs and have multiple relationships, why not? If it feels right, do it. That’s what history has been doing for centuries. But there are consequences: “And I’ll say to myself, ‘You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry’. But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself’?” (Luke 12:19-20). We can put our full faith and trust in me, myself and I and end up spending eternity in hell separated from God forever. Or we can trust in the Trinity where God proved His love for us by sending Jesus. By believing and trusting in Him, we will spend eternity in Heaven. Which Trinity are you living for?
