Walk in the Light: Listen to Jesus
June 27, 2018 | Timothy Peace
I watched an excellent lecture on Trinitarian theology this morning. The below lecture is given by Alister McGrath:
It made me think, again, about how vital theology is and how theology shapes out practices.
Alister discusses how complex the theology of the Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) is. He also draws from C.S. Lewis to point out how incomplete our understanding of God is without the New Testament teachings about the Trinity.
According to McGrath, via Lewis, our prayer life is inherently Trinitarian if we are doing it as modeled by Jesus. We recognize God as creator, as redeemer, and as comforter.
Alister’s discussion was motivating in the sense that I was reminded that God is big, and yet God is also near. Give it a watch when you've got time to spare, and I hope it will be helpful to you too.
