Living the Trinitarian Life

Mike Morrison

Living the Trinitarian Life

Love is God's most basic characteristic. The life that he wants to share with us is not just a biochemical existence – he wants us to have a life that is characterized by love – a life of joy and kindness and appreciation.

I’ve got a problem.

Actually, I’ve got two problems.

They are kind of personal problems, so I hope you don’t mind me mentioning them.

But you are probably already familiar with them, because you have the same two problems.

The first problem is sin, and the second is death.

A Hunger for God

Mike Morrison

A Hunger for God

I know I should love God with all my heart, but my heart really doesn’t care much about that – my heart wants a good job, a quiet life in the suburbs, a few friends, and that’s about all I want. And isn’t it God’s job to give me the desires of my heart?

Woody Allen is not only a comedian, but also sometimes a philosopher with serious observations about life. As a movie director, he often wanted to deal with serious issues rather than comedy. He has a wit and a knack for humor, and that helped him earn money to do the other movies that he really wanted to do. He knows that life is not all about laughter; there is something more to life that he wants to find and experience – but I suspect that he has not found it.

Repentance

Repentance

"I thought I had repented,” he told me, “but I did it again. No matter how sincere I think my repentance is, it never seems to be enough," he said. What does the gospel mean when it speaks of “repentance toward God”?

I once counseled a young man who was deeply afraid that God had rejected him because of his repeated sins.

“I thought I had repented,” he told me, “but I did it again.” “I don’t even know if I really have faith,” he said, “because I’m afraid God might not forgive me again. No matter how sincere I think my repentance is, it never seems to be enough,” he said.

What does the gospel mean when it speaks of “repentance toward God”?

It may seem like a strange question to ask Christians, but here it goes anyway. Do you love God? And you may think, “Well, that indeed is a strange question to ask a Christian.” Most Christians would not hesitate a moment to answer, “Yes with all my heart, all my mind, all my soul and all my being, I love God.”

In March or April of each year, Christian churches typically set aside a day to commemorate the death of Jesus Christ. And whenever we participate in the Lord’s Supper or Communion, we commemorate the death of Jesus. It’s an important part of Christian faith and practice. Today, I’d like to explore some of the reasons for this, and I would like to begin by asking a multiple-choice question:

Why did Jesus die?

Actually, there are multiple answers.

As Christians, we know that salvation comes by grace and not by works. It’s part of the bedrock of Christian faith.

Yet we also know the Bible tells us we need to be overcoming sin and living right. It’s easy to get the idea that salvation is really based on our good works more than it is on grace. And since we all still find ourselves sinning, life can get pretty frustrating and depressing at times.

I know I shouldn’t tease my wife, but sometimes I just can’t help it. For example she’ll say, “Dan, what do you want for dinner?” I’ll make up some menus such as maybe some imported sea bass, maybe surf and turf, a little filet mignon to go with that. Maybe a stuffed baked potato, some asparagus spears maybe, a salad with imported Roquefort dressing. How about some baked Alaska for dessert?

Ask ten average Christians in ten average churches to explain the doctrine of the Trinity, and you’ll probably get ten different explanations. Most Christians “accept” the Trinity as orthodox Christian doctrine. But they would be at a loss to explain why the doctrine matters, or how it affects their Christian lives.

Do you know what is God doing in your life? And what is he doing in the world as a whole? These two questions are of course interrelated: What God is doing in your life, has something to do with what he is doing in the world as a whole.

But just what is that? What’s he up to?

We wouldn’t know much about God at all, except for what the Bible tells us. In order for us to see what God is doing, he has to reveal himself to us, and he does that in the Bible.

So what is he up to?
