As I’m teaching my students on the doctrine of the Trinity, I have come across some awesome resources for my to read, study, and learn…and then to communicate it to them in more of their own language. The best stuff I’ve come across is anything by Dr. Bruce Ware. He wrote the book “Father, Son, and Spirit”. He also did a conference at John Piper’s church. Here are the 3 sweet mp3’s from those lectures. I promise you…you’ll love them!
It was at a Mexican restaurant where I tested them theologically for the first time.I remember one of the first weeks I was here with my student ministry.I asked them the question: “If the Father is God and the Son is God, does that mean that the Father is really the Son and the Son is really the Father?”Most of them answered “yes.”Finally, fourteen months later, I got to talk about that very topic that I first tested them with.

One question I love to get students thinking about is “What kind of spouse do you want to live with for the rest of your life?”I want them to go ahead and think of those real important qualities that truly matter as that will affect both who and how they date.If you’re a student reading this, go ahead and do that now…In the same way, God has qualities and characteristics.They are what we call His attributes.Who do you imagine God to be?Do you know what God is REALLY like?God wants us to know Him!
