Understanding and explaining the Trinity of God is often times not easy. The human mind cannot explain or fathom all of God’s ways, yet the simple egg seems to give me a glimpse into the depth that the Trinity of God holds. I have sometimes used the concept of the structure of the egg for this purpose – the yolk, the white, and the shell, each with its own identity, yet together make an egg.
Last Fall, I made a set of three nesting bowls to represent the Trinity of God using the example of the egg, which for some reason or another didn’t find its way into my blog until now. Hope these bowls inspire and ignite creativity and bring new revelation from the Lord.
Bowl 1: The bowl below represents the Holy Spirit and if you look at it from the egg world, it is the yolk of an egg. The Holy Spirit is God in us.
The scripture reference Acts 2 – Talks about the Holy Spirit of God that came upon God’s people.
Bowl 2: The white of the Egg represents Jesus, the Lamb of God which was without blemish. Jesus is God with us.
John 1:29 – John talks about the Lamb of God -Jesus. I used the white to represent the Lamb without blemish.
Bowl 3: God the Father, the “I Am That I Am” is represented through this final bowl, which is the egg shell. The Father is God for us.
Exodus 3:14 –And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”
I John 5:7-8: “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one”. (NKJV)
