Holy Trinity Sunday - JUNE 4

In the first half of the Church Year (Advent through Pentecost) we look at the life of Christhis birth, ministry, death, resurrection, ascension, and the sending of the Holy Spirit. In the second half of the year, we look at the teachings of Christ. We begin by looking at one of the most mind-blowing truths: that God is triune.

Already in the very first chapter of the Bible we read, “Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image . . .’” (Genesis 1:26). Note the singular “God” and the plural “us.” Scripture teaches us that there is only one God but that he exists as three personsFather, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is triune (three-in-one). This teaching is not some logical exercise or philosophical excursion. The doctrine of the Trinity is central to our salvation. The triune God is our Creator, Redeemer, and Sanctifier. Lose this doctrine, and as the Athanasian Creed says, you lose it all. A Jesus who is less than God is also less than a Savior.

So often, when life gets hard, we get frustrated. We don’t understand how God is working always for our good. But the doctrine of the Trinity teaches us we cannot even comprehend God’s existence. How then, could we ever comprehend all his workings? On this Holy Trinity Sunday, let it be enough to know that all three personsFather, Son, and Spiritlove us with an everlasting love.

Join us this week for Holy Trinity SundayGod in Three Persons, Blessed Trinity.

    Our Lutheran high school educates students not just for college acceptances, but for a meaningful life of learning and serving their Savior in whatever journey God has planned for them. From personal growth in faith huddles to the academic rigor of science courses, from developing skills in athletics to learning to serve each other despite our differences; we understand the challenges high school students face, and we value mentoring students throughout these sometimes rocky years.
