Knowing the Greatest Artist (Part 5)
It is now my intention to show you the joyful fellowship of the Triune God and why they had created things and man, the crowning glory of His creation-His masterpiece. The Trinity is the fundamental and the most beautiful doctrine of the Christian faith. This means that God is primarily a relational being. The Father, the Son and the Spirit have a joyful fellowship and relationship that has always existed. And God wants to share with us and to include us in that joy and fellowship which they have in eternity. How marvellous! Awesome! Let us consider some verses from the Scriptures with simple comments or explanations: Psalm 16:11, the Psalmist said, “You will show me the path of life; in your presence is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
John 16:12-15, Jesus said, “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are mine (Emphasis mine).Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.” (MS NKJV). John 17:13, the whole chapter is Jesus’ prayer to the Father, but let me emphasise verse 13 which says, “But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves.” John 14:11, “Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.”
David Jeremiah referring to Psalm 16:11 says this: What exists in God’s presence? Fullness of joy! What do we find in His right hand? Pleasures forevermore! When we are with God, we are on the scene of endless explosion of absolute pleasure and joy. The first and fundamental reason why heaven will not be boring is because heaven is God’s place and God is not boring…The God we serve is the most exciting, adventuresome, creative Person you can imagine, multiplied a million times over. We can’t begin to comprehend the excitement that belongs to the Triune God with whom we are going to spend eternity. This is the God who spoke the universe into existence in dramatic waves of creative stagecraft. He is the One who shaped the animals, created a donkey that could speak, a fish that could swallow a man, and a flock of ravens that could feed a prophet.” (Revealing the Mysteries pp 62, 63).
The Triune God are joyful Persons. Do you want to be in that circle of joy? You can have it-by opening your heart to Him, repent and come to Christ by faith, accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. Remember, it is all by grace and by grace alone. It is a Gift!
