The Bible teaches that God is one God, even though He exists as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Critics ridicule this concept, saying that we add 1+1+1 and come up with the sum of 1.

While we can show the critics that the doctrine of the Trinity is both biblical and reasonable, we must acknowledge that our human limitations make it impossible to fully understand and explain our infinite God. Yet we must accept the truth that God is triune, for only then can we appreciate all the wonders of our salvation.

In Peter’s sermon in Acts 2:22-41, for example, he presented the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit working together to provide for us freedom from sin’s guilt, deliverance from death’s power, and enablement for the Lord’s work. Peter didn’t explain the deep secrets of how three personalities are in essence one God; he just gratefully acknowledged the role of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in our salvation.

Let’s follow Peter’s example. Instead of trying to understand God’s triunity, let’s humbly accept this biblical truth and join with the Lord’s people in praising our God— Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
