The Plan

With so much time spent at home, we thought it would be a great time to put some of the opportunity to seek a deeper relationship with God into the hands of the students (or whoever else finds this devotional).

Because many of us don’t have a devotional schedule we stick to, we are going to start out at an easy pace. Each Wednesday and Friday morning, the next devotional (as a downloadable pdf) will be available, as well as, any links or videos..

Then, every Monday at 1PM, we will host a zoom meeting with everyone who completed the two devotionals for that week to talk through what we learned and what God is doing in our hearts. This meeting will ONLY be for students who completed the devotionals. 

Before Monday, the students that plan to join the zoom will need to contact me so that I can send them the zoom invite code.

This devotional was developed through a joint effort between Young Life and Bible Project.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

What You’ll Be Learning With This Devo

God is often described as 3-in-1 because he is the Father…and also the Son…and also the Holy Spirit.

From a human viewpoint, it doesn’t make sense. But God doesn’t exist in a box of human viewpoints.

The world has plenty of opinions about what God is like, who Jesus is, and what the Spirit does. Most of those ideas are wrong. Some are just silly. Others are dangerous.

The best and only place to learn the truth about God (who he is, what he’s like, why he bothers with our broken world, how he feels about people and the rest of his creation) is the Bible.

The Bible may be an ancient book, but it has eternal truth and wisdom for modern people. And we are all in desperate need of truth and wisdom, both about the things we can and can’t see – especially in times like these, when life is being turned upside-down for so many people all across the world.

God is a mystery. Yet we can still know him.

God is supernatural. Yet we can still experience him.

God is infinite. Yet we meets with us here-and-now.

God is God. Yet he loves us so-not-God-humans anyway.

God is our Father, Savior, and Lord, and we are his children. No truth is more important than that. So let’s read God’s word together, to learn more about him, his plans, and his people.

Day 11| God’s children – Our Heavenly Father

Day 12| God’s children – Our Heavenly Father

This section of THREE-in-ONE (God’s Fellowship) includes scripture passages that explain how God the Father, God the Son, God the Spirit, and God’s children relate to and intersect with one another. Some of the earliest church teachers and leaders described the Trinity with a word that meant “to make space around.” That word (perichoresis) is similar to the Greek word for “dance” (choreuo). The idea is that the Father, Son, and Spirit are engaged in a holy dance of love that leaves space around each other but also unites them as one. It’s a beautiful metaphor and picture of God.

As God’s children, we are invited to join their dance of love. While living on this earth, we will never fully understand the dance or get all the steps right. But we can catch glimpses of it and can begin to experience it. Our God is THREE-in-ONE. He lives in the hearts of his children. His children live in him. This is indeed a holy mystery.
