God Magnified, Part 5
Discerning "The Truth"
In this Plumbline series, we are discovering the “dwelling place,” which the Persons of the Trinity not only share but which the three Eternals are. Before the heavens and the earth or any created being existed, the “eternal Father” (Isa. 9:6), the “eternal Son” (1Tim. 1:16-17; John 1:1), and the “eternal Spirit” (Heb. 9:14), Themselves, constituted “the eternal kingdom” (2Pet. 1:11). God is three relational, Self-giving Persons who mutually indwell One Another. The Triune-God is profoundly inclusive and hospitable; into this relational, inter-Personal ‘infrastructure’ known as “the kingdom of God” we have been invited. The Triune-God is calling us Home into Themselves: re-gene-rating, ‘fusing,’ and acculturating us as adopted children into “God in Christ.”

“O magnify the Lord with me!” (Ps. 34:3). One effective way to closely examine and worth-ship God is to meditate on what the Scriptures specifically testify that “God is.” As the Holy Spirit opens the God is statements of the Bible, we discover a progressive magnification—each becomes a lens to understand the next, yielding an awesome, panoramic vision that leads deeper into the living God—the fusion of the Trinity. In this fifth volume, we will magnify “God is true” (John 3:33) to understand the divine nature of Agape—the all-true Love by which Father, Son, and Spirit are one. In repentance, David prayed, “You desire truth in the innermost being” (Ps. 51:8). “Truth is in Jesus” (Eph. 4:21), and we by His grace become sharers in Paul’s testimony, “the truth of Christ is in me” (2Cor. 11:10). As partakers of God’s true nature, we are able to participate in a relationship of reciprocal gene-rosity with the Trinity and one another—the kingdom of God.
