God is a Family

    We believe in the Trinity, one God in three Persons.  The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit make up God.  God reveals Himself to us as a family.  The Father, the Son, and the Spirit of Love.  How great and honored are all families because they are to mirror God!  “Then God said: Let us make human beings in our image, after our likeness.” – [Genesis 1:26]
    Our families have parents, which mirror God the Father.  Our families have children, which mirror God the Son.  The love within our families mirrors the Holy Spirit, the Spirit that is Love.  Sure, not all are called to be parents.  But, all were children.  In fact, we are still called to be children in the family of God.  If we are to call God “Our Father,” then we must be His children, obedient and receiving of His love.
    God reveals Himself to us as a family.  Being made in God image and likeness, we find our self and God within family.  Children find God by the love of their parents, both the love the parents have for their children and the love the parents have for each other.  Being surrounded by love, they are able to find the God that is Love.
    God loves us so much that He put His very imprint in us.  Our families are a mirroring of God, so let us shine for all to see the God of Love!
