Neapolitan Ice Cream

As a child, I enjoyed eating Neapolitan Ice Cream. What a great concept to include three flavors of ice cream in one box! You could choose which flavor you liked the best or you could try a little of each one. Either way, it sure was a fun way to eat ice cream.

What is great about our God is that He also reveals Himself to us in the three persons of the Trinity. He is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The bible teaches us that after we make disciples, we are to baptize those disciples into the Trinity of God.

Matthew 28:18-20 “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in (into) the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.””

The Father is the “Great I am.” The Son is Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God that dwells in the lives of believers. There are three persons of God, but there is only one God!

Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one!”

The bible mentions the three persons of the Trinity in several places. Here are two of them:

Jude vs. 20-21 “But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.”

2 Corinthians 13:14 “May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”

Neapolitan Ice Cream is good if you like that sort of thing. However, there is no comparison to the benefits that Christians receive from the Trinity of God.
