The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven.Hebrews 1:3
The Glory of God
God the Father, Jesus the Son of man, and the Holy Spirit are three in one. When I was child, I remember a Sunday School teacher explaining the trinity to me in terms I could understand: water in its different states (solid, liquid, gas). When water transforms between the different states of matter it remains the same: it is still H2O. It just has different physical properties. God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are all one in the same; they are God existing as three separate entities.
As I grew in my faith, I understood that each had a different purpose as well. God the Father loves and cares for His children. The Son Jesus was the sacrifice who wiped away sins and resurrected to give us new life. The Holy Spirit advocates for us on our behalf before the Father. All three of them work together to give us a new, abundant life. The Son radiates the glory of the Lord because He is God. He is a part of God. God holds Him to high esteem. To know Him is to know God Himself.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for sending your Son Jesus to die for my sins, that I may live with you, my Father. Thank you for the Holy Spirit who leads and guides me. Amen.
