And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
God said, “Let us make man in our image.” This is the Bible’s first mention of the Trinity. If we start reading the story from the beginning, this is the first we hear about Jesus. It is not until the New Testament that the details of the Trinity are revealed.
Yet God knew, from the moment of creation, and spoke through Moses, that there is indeed a Trinity, and that humankind would be modeled after the Trinity, that we would be trichotomous: body, spirit, and soul.
As we seek God and the transformation that comes from a relationship with Jesus, we would do well to remember these three elements of our being. If we work at the growth of one element while ignoring another, our growth will be slowed.
God made us body, spirit, and soul for a reason. We are made in the image of the Trinity so that we can reflect God to a lost world. But in order to do so, we must surrender all three parts of ourselves to Jesus and allow Him to transform us entirely.
