Trinity Sunday
Psalm 48:14
For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even to death.

Great and awful is the subject which this Sunday brings before us — the greatest and most awful of any. It is not a simple historical fact, like those which we commemorate on other great days of our Church; like the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ on Christmas Day, or His death on Good Friday, or His resurrection on Easter Day, or the descent of the Holy Ghost on Whit-Sunday, that we have to do with now. It is the revealed truth respecting God Himself; the unfolding to us, as far as we can receive it, of the name and nature of the Almighty. But this mystery has its practical side. Take —

I. THE NAME OF FATHER. What word could more truly convey the love of God to us?

II. THE NAME OF THE SON. What a revelation this is; how it brings heaven very near to us and clears the way for sinners to draw nigh to the holy God.

III. THE NAME OF THE HOLY GHOST. He it is who makes us holy, raises us from the death of sin to the life of righteousness and so fits us for the eternal inheritance. He is our Instructor; the Spirit of counsel, of knowledge and true godliness; the Spirit of God's holy fear.

(R. D. B. Rawnsley, M. A.)
