We do not have to wait till the last day, the day of the resurrection when Jesus returns, to become a new creation. It all starts here and now. It starts on the day God reconciles us with Godself. On that day we celebrate by singing and shouting:  The old has gone, the new is here!

2 Timothy 1:5-6 - “I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.  For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.”

Trinity Sunday is observed on the first Sunday after Pentecost. 
Our confession of the Holy Trinity is not about asking a mathematical question about how 3 can be one and one can be 3. Because it is a divine mystery.
