My relationship with the Trinity is personal. I have to worship and praise God daily for sending His son, my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ to die for my sins. Then above all, loved me beyond measures by leaving me a comforter, a protector, and an advisor, the Holy Spirit, to continually prepare me for the calling that He has placed on my life."
