The Holy Trinity (3)

Some years ago a teacher in a fifth-grade class asked his students if anyone could explain electricity. One boy raised his hand. The teacher asked: “How would you explain it, Jimmy?” Jimmy scratched his head a moment and then replied: “Last night I knew it, but this morning I’ve forgotten.” The teacher shook his head sadly and said to the class, “What a tragedy. The only person in the world ever to understand electricity and he’s forgotten.”

The teacher’s position may describe you and me when we study the doctrine of the Trinity. we accept the fact that the Holy Spirit is God, just as much God as God the Father and God the Son, but when it comes to explaining it, we are at a loss.”
