Living Encounter

The Son of God came into the world, as one of us, to achieve His Father’s saving purpose in the power of the Spirit.  Having laid down his life, he was raised by His Father as the new man who is head of God’s new humanity in communion with His Father in the Spirit.

This living Lord exalted at the right hand of His Father encounters us personally in the SpiritHe gave himself to us and for us to achieve all on our behalf and now he gives himself to us again in the Spirit in a living and personal way.

Faith is born as the Living Lord encounters us by His Spirit enabling us to share in             His love relationship with the Father as dearly loved children.

Faith grows in understanding as the Living Lord encounters us again and again so             that we come to know our Father more deeply through His Son and by His Spirit

Faith expresses itself in lived experience as the Living Lord encounters us in all the           realities of daily life so that we are transformed into His likeness to the glory of                   His Father in the Spirit.

And so, Trinitarian thinking is not a  detached and rational formulation of perplexing ideas about three-in-one. Rather, Trinitarian thinking is sheer wonder in fellowship with our Triune God as our Living Lord encounters us again and again and again by His Spirit.
