Day 5 - Trinitarian Benediction

Friday, August 9th, 2013

2 Corinthians 13:14 (NIV)

“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”

Reflection

This is Paul’s last sentence in the book of 2 Corinthians. His desire for the church is for their wellbeing, which is entirely tied to the grace that comes from the Trinitarian God.  And throughout his various letters, Paul repeatedly sought to bless others with God’s grace -”The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you” (I Thess. 5:28).  As we experience the Lord’s grace through every season of our lives, we will come to know the depth of His love:

The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star,
And reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His son to win;
His erring child He reconciled,
And pardoned from his sin.

-F.H. Lehman

The ultimate consequence of Christ’s grace and God’s love is “the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.” Without the Trinity, we could not have said, “God is with us”, but thankfully because of this reality we can live a life following Him who is with us.  And as His church, the Trinity invites us into true fellowship with one another manifested by His abounding love and unity!

Responding to the message

Reflect upon the grace and love of our Triune God that rescued us from darkness.  Spend time praying that this Trinitarian blessing of grace, love and fellowship in unity with one another would increase in our midst as we seek to advance His Kingdom.
