This is the second part of our series leading up to Easter. We’re discovering, savoring, and celebrating God’s incredible love story for us! If you haven’t read Part 1, just check out the previous post! And each part of this series includes a short and sweet workout. Here’s a 15-min lower body video to get you moving and burning bright!
While GOD IS LOVE and each person of the Trinity is love, each has a unique role in His love story. (check out God’s Love Story – Part 1 for more)
God the Father authors the love story.
God the Son accomplishes the love story.
God the Spirit applies the love story.
(These helpful statements are taken from Tara Leigh Coble’s Trinity study.)
We were created by and for this ultimate love!
We were created to be called lovely by God the Father as children of God.
We were created for a love story as the bride of Christ.
We were created for help and community in relationship with God the Spirit and with His believers.
So whether you just want to know you’re Daddy’s Girl or desire to be pursued like a beautiful bride or just need a personal friend and deep relationship, GOD IS LOVE! Just as a father should protect and provide security for His child, God the Father is authoring good and desiring a secure future for you. Just as centuries ago when the groom prepared a room for his bride in his father’s house, God the Son is preparing a room for you. (See John 14:1-4) And just as a dear friend knows how to help and what to say, God the Spirit is near and engaged and care for you.
Yet GOD IS EVEN BETTER than any earthly father, groom, or friend! Even better than what we can ask, think, or imagine! We’re talking about a love story that encompasses all we need or could ever want! Let’s celebrate and move and rest in this powerful truth!
