The Death of God, Part 2 of 3 (The Mysteries of God)

June 8, 2016

If you’re a dad and your son is gravely ill in the hospital, you would do anything to trade places and bear your son’s pain. The same is true for God the Father. When His Son Jesus agonized on the cross, God felt the pain His Son was enduring, knowing that Jesus was paying the price for our sin.

The death of Jesus on a Roman cross is the turning point of history. That act of obedience to the Father made possible the salvation of all who believe on His Son. Jesus said, “There is no greater love than a man lay down His life for His friends.”

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” These shocking words in John 14 state that, without Jesus, there is no way to have eternal life. But how does this relate to the Trinity?

The relationship between the Father and the Son is crucial for understanding Christianity. Jesus died as a sacrifice to avert the Father’s wrath against us - guilty sinners. That is an expression of love that can never be fully understood.

How do the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit relate to each other? There’s great mystery here, but the Bible gives us direction in understanding this. Let’s clarify their roles, focusing first on how Jesus, God’s Son, spoke of His Father in heaven.

God is incomprehensible. He is so vast that our tiny minds cannot fathom His immensity.  Theologians have wrestled with the nature of God for centuries, trying to sort out how the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit relate to each other. But it’s not a problem to be solved; it’s a mystery at which we marvel.

To ask why God does what He does is to go where angels fear to tread. Paul wrote, “How unsearchable are His judgments, and his ways past finding out.” God’s purposes are unable to be thwarted. We must learn to accept His sovereignty and obey His commands.

Though many scheme their way to power in politics, it is actually God who sets up the leaders of nations. History has been called “His story,” and rightly so. God’s decrees determine and structure history, even the rising and falling of governments.

Long before any of us were born, the life-giving God set His creation in motion. These decisions were grounded in his eternal decisions. Theologians call these decisions “decrees,” non-negotiable orders God laid down – which govern creation, redemption, and history.

The complexity of the human body is awe-inspiring. We take for granted that we each have some 34 trillion cells, each one packed with volumes of information. Even to such incredible precision, we can say with certainty that God knows us.

Psalm 139 tells us that God knows everything. Nothing is hid from His gaze, even the children who inhabit their mothers’ wombs. In this Psalm, we rejoice that God cared for us even before we’re born.
