This coming Sunday we celebrate the nature of God. The God who is majestic and yet he allows Abraham to speak to him as an equal. He speaks to Moses through a burning bush. He is God who delivers. He frees the Israelites out of Egypt, using wonders to enthral the children of Israel. This God has given us commands to follow each day so that our days may be long. He is a generous God and equally a jealous God who does not want to be a substitute in our lives. He wants to be the first and only God. He is the God of relationships. God does not send Angels to have a relationship with us on his behave but he himself comes and has a relationship with us not only as a community, but as individuals. This God desires living relationship with us. It is not abstract and it’s as really as you and me. Our God is quick to forgive. He does not bare grudges. Our God wants authentic relationship to flourish. He wants relationships that have integrity. He wants us to honest relationship with him and this should be seen equally in our relationships with one another. If one looks at the Holy Trinity, One sees God who is in a relationship. There is no tag of war going in the God head. It is a community that exercise unity, peace and love. We as Christians are called to have living relationships with each other. For this pleases God. Our relationships, should not be infected with, slander, gossip, Un-charitableness, instead our relationship should always imitate the relationship we find in the Trinity. Trinity Sunday celebrates the nature of God we are called to imitate not only in the church but the community at large.
