This past weekend at Eastbrook Church we began a new series entitled “One: The Being of God in the Life of the Church.” This first message in the series explored how unity must have its origin not in human invention or speculation but in the gift of God’s indwelling presence within the Christian community as the Triune God.
You can view the message video and outline for the message is below. You can follow along with the entire series here and the devotional that accompanies the series here. You could always join us for weekend worship in-person or remotely via Eastbrook at Home.
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.” (Deuteronomy 6:4)
God is One (Exodus 20:2-3; Deuteronomy 6:4-5)
• The One God who exists
• The One God who has no peers
• The One God who is relational
The One God is Triune (Genesis 1:1-3; John 1:1; Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19)
• The Father is God; the Son is God; the Holy Spirit is God
• God is three-in-one (the Trinity)
Humanity Made Alive in the Triune God
- Enter into relationship with the Triune God.
- Recognize the unity and distinctness of the three persons of the Triune God.
- Live in the dance of the Triune God.
This week dig deeper into the theme of the unity of our Triune God in one or more of the following ways:
- Memorize Deuteronomy 6:4-5 this week
- Read the Apostles Creed, the Nicene Creed and the Athanasian Creed, which are three historic statements of our Christian faith
- Read a book that helps you understand this more, such as Delighting in the Trinity by Tim Chester or Delighting in the Trinity: An Introduction to the Christian Faith by Michael Reeves
