Many times people say things like, “We need to get back to the basics,” or, “I wish we could go back to the good old days.” or, “we need to get back to Jesus, or the early church.”
I understand the sentiment, but, I wonder. Can you ever go back? Is that the direction God calls us to move?
This sketch looks at the Trinity and time. God the Creator promised life and continually expanded that promise throughout the story of the Old Testament. That promise became enfleshed when the second person of the Trinity became the man, Jesus, who fulfilled God’s promise with the demonstration of absolute love through his death on the Cross. This practice of love showed us the way of God in practice through selfless love for the other.
