The Triune God is Self-Giving in His Love

The Triune God, who is eternally in reciprocal, self-giving relationship, is a sending God.

The Father sends the Son at the incarnation. The Father and the Son send the Holy Spirit at the impartation of Pentecost. The Father and the Son and the Spirit send the church from Pentecost to this very day.

As the Triune God is irrepressible in His love, He is a sending God who cannot hold back. He is by His very nature a missionary God.

God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – is ahead of us on mission. He is beyond us and inviting us into this work with Him.

If we know Him, we move toward Him…and He is in the blank spaces of the world inviting us to join Him where He already is.

God is at work in the blank spaces.
