CREATION AND THE HOLY TRINITY
God the Father is the creator of heaven and earth and everything in it. That does not mean that only God the Father was at work. The Son and the Holy Spirit were also involved in the creation.
The participation of the three persons in one God is clear in the creation account of man. God said: “Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness” (Gen 1:26). This verse says that God is more than one person, while remaining one God.
Paul writes about the involvement of Jesus in the creation: “For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities–all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together” (Col 1:15-17). John also writes about the role of Jesus in creation: “God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him” (Jn 1:3).
The involvement of the Holy Spirit in the creation is clear from Genesis 1:2 “The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was moving over the surface of the waters.” Psalm 104:30 is: “When you send forth your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the ground.” Thus, there was unified work of the three persons of the Trinity in the creation.
We owe the Most Holy Trinity for our physical and spiritual life. Everything we enjoy in life is by the grace of God. Let us be grateful to God and do His will in our lives with the hope of communion with the Most Holy Trinity in heaven at the completion of our life in this world.
