another trinity

Colossians 1:15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.

Romans 8:29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren;


I was reading the passages above this morning and it occurred to me that there is another trinity (spiritual grouping of three) that has great personal significance.  God, the Father, has not been seen directly by any man.  He is the marvelous invisible One who rules over all.  He chose to reveal himself through His Son.  Jesus is the direct image of God.  In Jesus we have the best picture possible of who the Father is and what He is like.  And then, wonder of wonders, we are given the privilege of being conformed to the image of Christ.  As a result, in Christ, we are being fashioned into the image of the Father.  Father, Son and Believers...another wonderful trinity.


blessings to all being shaped into a new image!
