The Trinity remains God’s master plan to interact with humans on all levels: physical and spiritual. While reading the assigned passages, I identified God the Father as the creator, provider, and judge. We see God’s creation works throughout the first two chapters of Genesis. In His wit, He understood that all His creations, primarily human beings, must never lack. This phenomenon explains why He uplifted Adam and Eve to take care of the fishes, plants, and animals and directed them to till the land and continue the reproduction work (Bill, n.d.). Unfortunately, our disobedience alienated us from Him, thus, attracting His wrath. David recognized God’s judging role in Psalms 9:7-8 when he praised Him and reminded us of His just approach to punishing sinners: “The Lord reigns forever; He has established His throne for judgment. He rules the world in righteousness and judges the peoples with equity.” This passage taught me that God treats us as ideal fathers who will bring up their children. Such a father models behavior and punishes misbehavior but still provides for each child without being discriminative.

In addition, it became manifest from the readings that God the Son remains our only savior. God the Father thought of Jesus Christ as the best way to restore the broken relationship with His favorite creation. As the name suggests, Christ came as the anointed messiah whose primary role is to redeem our lost souls. As Christians, we see this in John 3:16, where Christ’s duty is laid bare, and conditions for salvation are spelled out: “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Like Strand and Cole (2014), I believe faith is the only price we pay to secure our redemption.

Besides Christ’s saving role, He heals, teaches, and counsels us. Jesus healed all illnesses, including mental health problems: “Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. News about him spread all over Syria, and people brought to him all who were ill with various diseases, those severely suffering pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed; and he healed them” (Matthew 4:23-24). I agree with McTavish (2018) that Christ’s saving, healing, teaching, and counseling works are still with us today through genuine Gospel ministers. Finally, the Holy Spirit acts as our advocate and helper because He guides us through a sinful world. We see this in 2 Corinthians 3:17: “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” With the His support, we are fearless warriors of God and focus on heavenly things.

Describe how the significance of believing that a personal relationship to the Triune God which is not only made possible by Him for every person but is desired greatly by Him, could affect your view of the meaning and value of life.

Once we firmly believe that God wants a one-on-one connection with us, I think that should be an awake up call. Our God comes in three in one. For this reason, the Holy Spirit and Jesus Christ are actively involved when He wants us close to Him. God hates evil and has always demonstrated His willingness to redeem His people from their original and personal sins. Against this backdrop, my perception of life would change dramatically because God’s intervention makes it more valuable and meaningful. In other words, I would run back to God as a lesser being because doing so comes in handy in restoring my relationship with Him.
