Knowing the love that surpasses knowledge

To know the Triune God more deeply we always stay within the Jesus story. We stay within the story because we know that who God is in Jesus he is eternally within himself. He is not different in himself from who he is towards us in Jesus. So we continually move through the story centred on Jesus to discern ever more clearly and deeply who the Triune God is within himself. For reflection on Trinity is not a movement away from Jesus, but always a movement further into Jesus. We move into ever more deeply into the one who is alive here and now revealing himself to us by his Spirit.

As we immerse ourselves in the Jesus story, God opens himself to us through Jesus and the Spirit showing us more and more that he is the communal being who eagerly seeks communion with us. He also opens us to himself in the Spirit through Jesus enabling us to draw near to him as our own Father sharing in his circle of love. In this loving action, God continually creates an intimate two-way relation between himself and us and us and himself. This is an ongoing and dynamic relating in love that fulfils God’s purpose for us. For he always wants to be God with us and he always wants us to be with him in deep union and communion. Within this dynamic and relational knowing we know ever more fully the love that surpasses knowledge.
