God’s greatest miracle.
Word made flesh
I used not to believe
In the Trinity;
It was against my family creed –
For Tertullian’s ‘three-ness’
Three distinct persons
Jesus the Son
How could I not revile
And his influence on Granddad
Been passed on through my father, so
I didn’t know
John one eighteen
Start in Matthew
I would tell my friends, “God is One,
Jesus? God’s Son.”
Not thinking that every offspring is its parent’s kind
I was blind.
One day I decided to see what the Bible said.
Timothy Three Sixteen
“Lord and God”
I discovered what Trinitarians claim concerning Unity
Jesus was clearly God in John
And so many other places, too
It was true.
Jesus, like God
John eight fifty-eight
My world was transformed, my Savior seen as splendid
When I assented
Things got a little hard at home when it was God we talked about –
I am still learning, and God is doing tremendous things in my family.
Waves and particles
Do justice, though
Because it seems illogical, we’re confused,
To things being so complex in existing.
Even though we shouldn’t expect God to be simple, dissectible –
Hebrew Scriptures too
To earth coming
And though I don’t fully understand it and recognize it as complicated,
It’s also necessitated.
It is only because Christ is God the Infinite that His singular sacrifice
We need an eternal sacrifice, for sin against God is of eternal weight and wear-
Christ can bear.
