March 17, 2020: 3 Leaf Clover
Today is St. Patrick’s Day. Fun facts: St. Patrick was a missionary in the 5th century, and introduced Ireland to Christianity. His color was actually light blue, not green, today used to be a serious religious holiday but it’s turned into more of a party day. Boston dyes it’s river green every year, and the 3-leaf clover was a sign of the Trinity.
You know the Trinity, right? It means that God is three persons at the same time, to be truly God–God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Each part God’s nature serves a different purpose: God created a plan for the world, Jesus became human to carry out the plan, and the Holy Spirit makes sure that we are called to grace and works in our hearts to transform us.
We have the power of three–ever watching, ever present, all-knowing. In this time of worry, remember that there is power on our side.
I pray that you will enjoy the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship[c] of the Holy Spirit.2 Corinthians 13:13 (ERV)
Dear Lord, thank you for being so mighty and powerful, and for giving us peace, love, grace and fellowship through all three parts of the one true God. Amen.
