The passage in Genesis relates God’s creation of earth and all living beings. “So God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it, because on it God rested from all the work that he had done in creation..” In the Gospel of Matthew Jesus was about to leave the earth and he told the disciples , “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit……..And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Reverend Frnka discussed the doctrine of the Holy Trinity- God, Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is difficult for some to understand the concept of three in one. We know now in part, but we must have faith in the mysteries of God, as man tries to explain them in his own words. In our first reading we learn of God as the creator and law giver. Then as God’s people stray from him and refuse to listen to the prophets, He sends Christ to the world as a human. Through belief in Christ, we can be reconciled with God. Christ taught us how to have compassion for one another and to give to those who were in need. When Christ left the earth to return to heaven, He left the Holy Spirit to abide in us as a guide to daily living. The Holy Spirit also helps us feel God’s presence in our daily lives and to know He is always with us. We can be aware of the Holy Spirit in prayer time, worship time, and in his helping us in our daily needs.
We should not limit God. Christ is our mediator with God. God will speak to us through the Holy Spirit and guide us in the ways we should go. Our only limitations are ourselves, because we do not put our faith fully in God. Through God, we can accomplish great works.
