Holy Trinity Sunday is observed on the first Sunday after Pentecost has been celebrated. 
After following the gospel events over the last months, beginning with Advent and Christmas and observing Epiphany, Lent, Easter and Pentecost, we conclude this focussed gospel journey on Trinity Sunday with the question:
Who is the God that so graciously saved and sanctified us?
 
The Holy Trinity has been revealed to show us the essence of the character of God and when we believe it, God brings us to worship, to being in awe of our Holy God and to revere his divine love and harmony!
At the centre of God’s character is the revelation of a relational God. The essence of God is that the Trinity, from all eternity, exists as God in the relationship of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
 
The Father is God, the Son is God and the Holy Spirit is God – the one and only true God. And the three ways of God’s being are in perfect harmony, at peace, with one another. The three Persons of the Holy Trinity share the one, eternal Throne of Light with love and in harmony.  “Listen people of God, the LORD our God, is one!”
 
As God is in perfect accord with Godself, we also are to be in harmony with the Holy Trinity and in harmony with all God’s children. Holy Trinity, in essence meaning God-in-relationship, desires us to share in the LORD’s peace, harmony and love.
 
The Father created us for this purpose and the Son came to recreate this harmony for our salvation, by giving his life to take away the sin that stands between us and God. The Holy Spirit was sent to live in us to grant us faith and power in order to have a relationship with the Father through our relationship with the Son.
 
God calls men and women, boys and girls, to be in fellowship with Godself and to be commissioned and sent into the world to share this divine heavenly peace with all who still live outside a relationship with the LORD God of the covenant of grace.
 
Glory to the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit! As it was in the beginning it is now, and will forever be!
 
A liturgical Creed for Trinity Sunday:
I believe in the one and only almighty God:
the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The LORD our God, the LORD is one!
 
I believe in God the Father,
Creator and Sustainer of all things;
 
And in God the Son,
Jesus Christ, our Saviour and Lord,
who suffered and died for our sins,
rose from the dead,
and is exalted in heaven
for the sake of our eternal victory;
 
And in God, the Holy Spirit,
who assembles the Church,
makes us one body in Christ,
convicts us of both sin and forgiveness,
and works eternal life in us.  AMEN.
