In theological schools, I have learnt many theological jargons. But, as a rule, I seldom use these terminologies in my preaching, or else, people would doze off, or their minds would have wandered to a distant place. Let me illustrate this. People might have difficulties of understanding the meaning and essence of the term “monotheism”, but if I tell them: “There is only one real God. Although there are other supernatural beings, no other creatures can compare with Him.” I think it is easier for them to grab its meaning in this way. That’s true, God has no equal!
Let’s ponder the words of Isaiah.
18With whom, then, will you compare God? To what image will you liken him? 19As for an idol, a metalworker casts it, and a goldsmith overlays it with gold and fashions silver chains for it. (Isaiah 40:18–19 NIV)
Let’s pose a question to God. “I understand there is only one real God, but can You help me to understand the trinitarian truth?”
Let’s practice what you learnt. Pray that you can understand the trinitarian truth.
Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. After understanding more about the trinitarian truth, speak boldly about it to a non-believer when opportunity arises.
