SERMON TITLE: THE TREASURE OF THE TRINITY

“FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. FOR GOD SENT NOT HIS SON INTO THE WORLD TO CONDEMN THE WORLD,; BUT THAT THE WORLD THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED. HE THAT BELIEVETH ON HIM IS NOT CONDEMNED: BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY BECAUSE HE HATH NOT BELIEVED IN THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD.” JOHN 3:16-18

1 CORINTHIANS 12:4-7 “NOW THERE ARE DIVERSITIES OF GIFTS, BUT THE SAME SPIRIT. AND THERE ARE DIFFERENCES OF ADMINISTRATION, BUT THE SAME LORD. AND THERE ARE DIVERSITIES OF OPERATIONS, BUT IT IS THE SAME GOD WHICH WORKETH ALL IN ALL. BUT THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SPIRIT IS GIVEN TO EVERY MAN TO PROFIT WITHAL.”

I’M GLAD I’M SERVING A WORKING GOD. AND I KNOW, ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD THAT THERE ARE DIFFERENCES AMONG GIFTS, ADMINISTRATIONS AND OPERATIONS BUT THERE’S SOMETHING I KNOW THIS WEEK ABOUT STUDYING THIS SCRIPTURE. IT SAYS THERE ARE DIFFERENCES OF GIFTS BUT IT IS THE SAME SPIRIT. THERE ARE DIFFERENCES OF ADMINISTRATION BUT THE SAME LORD. AND THERE ARE DIVERSITIES OF OPERATIONS BUT IT IS THE SAME GOD. I WANT TO PREACH TO YOU TODAY ON THE TREASURE OF THE TRINITY. THERE’S A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO TALK ABOUT WHAT GOD’S DONE FOR THEM. BUT EVEN THOUGH WE’RE SERVING A GOD THAT THE BIBLE SAYS IS ONLY ONE; HE COMES IN THREE PARTS. WE’RE SERVING GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON AND GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT. I’M GLAD HE STARTED OUT ON OUR LEVEL IN VERSE FOUR WHERE HE SHARED WITH US THE SPIRIT AND THAT’S THE GIFT. THEN HE SHARED WITH US THE ADMINISTRATION AND THAT’S THE LORD AND THEN HE SHARED WITH US THE OPERATION AND THAT’S GOD.

I THOUGHT ABOUT THE FOUNDER. THE FOUNDER IS NONE OTHER THAN GOD. HE’S THE FOUNDER OF THE TRINITY.

ISAIAH 45:22 “LOOK UNTO ME, AND BE YE SAVED, ALL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH: FOR I AM GOD, AND THERE IS NONE ELSE.”

THEN I THOUGHT ABOUT THE FOUNDATION. THE FOUNDATION IS JESUS CHRIST.

IN ACTS 4:12 “NEITHER IS THERE SALVATION IN ANY OTHER: FOR THERE IS NONE OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN GIVEN AMONG MEN, WHEREBY WE MUST BE SAVED.”

THEN I THOUGHT ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT AND WHAT PART THE HOLY SPIRIT PLAYS. GOD SHOWED ME THAT HE WAS THE FOUNTAIN. HE TOLD THE WOMAN AT THE WELL THAT HE’D PUT THE FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATERS DOWN INSIDE OF YOU. SHE LEFT HER WATER POT THAT DAY BECAUSE SHE HAD MET GOD THE FATHER AND THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD.

THERE’S A LOT OF PEOPLE AND CHURCHES TODAY IN THE LAND THAT HAS GOD AS THEIR FATHER, JESUS AS THEIR LORD AND THE HOLY SPIRIT AS THEIR COMFORTER TODAY. IF YOU’LL LEARN MORE ABOUT THE TRINITY, YOU CAN HAVE SOME TREASURES IN YOUR LIFE.

I WANT TO SHARE WHAT I FOUND IN PSALMS 111 ABOUT THE WORK OF THE TRINITY.

“PRAISE YE THE LORD. I WILL PRAISE THE LORD WITH MY WHOLE HEART, IN THE ASSEMBLY OF THE UPRIGHT, AND IN THE CONGREGATION. THE WORKS OF THE LORD ARE GREAT, SOUGHT OUT OF ALL THEM THAT HAVE PLEASURE THEREIN.”

WE FOUND THERE THAT THE WORK IS GREAT. THEN WE FOUND HIS WORK IS HONORABLE, GLORIOUS AND RIGHTEOUS IN VERSE THREE. “HIS WORK IS HONORABLE AND GLORIOUS: AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS ENDURETH FOREVER.” THEN IN VERSE FOUR WE FOUND THAT HIS WORKS ARE REMEMBERED. “HE HATH MADE HIS WORKS TO BE REMEMBERED: THE LORD IS GRACIOUS AND FULL OF COMPASSION.”

THEN WE FOUND OUT IN VERSE SIX THAT HIS WORKS ARE POWERFUL. “HE HATH SHEWED HIS PEOPLE THE POWER OF HIS WORKS, THAT HE MAY GIVE THEM THE HERITAGE OF THE HEATHEN.” THEN WE FOUND IN VERSE SEVEN THAT HIS WORKS ARE VERITY AND JUDGMENT AND SURE. “THE WORKS OF HIS HANDS ARE VERITY AND JUDGMENT: ALL OF HIS COMMANDMENTS ARE SURE.” THERE’S NOTHING MORE SURER TODAY THAN TO KNOW YOU’RE SAVED BY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.

EPHESIANS 2:10 “WE ARE HIS WORKMANSHIP, CREATED IN CHRIST JESUS UNTO GOOD WORKS, WHICH GOD HATH BEFORE ORDAINED THAT WE SHOULD WALK IN THEM.” DID YOU CATCH THAT? WE ARE HIS WORKMANSHIP. WITHOUT HIM WE’RE NOTHING. UNTIL JESUS CHRIST IS IN YOUR LIFE YOU’RE NOTHING BUT CLAY. HE’LL TAKE YOU AND MOLD YOU AND MAKE YOU INTO WHAT HE WANTS YOU TO BE.

ROMANS 9:28 “FOR HE WILL FINISH THE WORK, AND CUT IT SHORT IN RIGHTEOUSNESS: BECAUSE A SHORT WORK WILL THE LORD MAKE UPON THE EARTH.” IN OTHER WORDS IT’S NOT GOING TO LAST LONG. DO YOU REMEMBER WHAT JESUS SAID ON THE CROSS WHEN HE GAVE HIS LIFE AT CALVARY? HE LOOKED UP AND SAID HE HAD FINISHED THE WORK THAT GOD HAD SENT HIM TO DO. JESUS CAME HERE TO DO A WORK. HE CAME TO SEEK AND TO SAVE THAT WHICH WAS LOST. I WONDER, DO YOU REALLY KNOW CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR TODAY?
