God's Three Faces (Journal Entry)


From My Journal

Jesus is the face of God whom we can touch.  God is the one to whom we fall down and worship.  The Holy Spirit is the one whom we internalise; who dwells within and we take with us wherever we go.

After writing the thought above I opened my bible and read the following verses:

God:

"You have made ready this body of mine to lay down as a sacrifice upon your altar."
Hebrews 10:5

This should be our response to God, as it was for Jesus (who gave his very life).

Jesus:

"Christ has entered into heaven itself to appear now before God as our friend."
Hebrews 9:24

Jesus is our friend - the human and relational face of God.

The Holy Spirit:

"The Holy Spirit testifies that this is so for He has said... I will write my laws into their minds so that they will always know my will, and I will put my laws into their hearts so that they will want to obey them."
Hebrews 10:15

The Holy Spirit who dwells within and leads us into all truth.
