August 31, 2020 - Perichoresis: Identity In the Triune God

Updated: Nov 25, 2020


Perichoresis


Genuine acceptance removes fear and hiding and creates freedom to know and be known. In this freedom arises a fellowship and sharing so honest and open and real that persons involved dwell in one another. There is union without loss of individual identity. When one weeps, the other tastes salt. It is only in the Triune relationship of Father, Son, and Spirit that personal relationship of this order exists, and the early church used the word perichoresis to describe it. The good news is that we have been included in this relationship. And it is to be played out fully in each of us and in all creation.


Perichoresis (a Greek word…look it up) is the definition Trinitarian Grace International prefers to use. We are ONE. We reside within one another…….God (Father-Son-Spirit) wraps you and me in an eternal embrace of love and acceptance. Think about this truth.... relax and rest in its warmth.


  • Acts 17:28 (TPT): It is through him that we live and function and have our identity; just as your own poets have said, ‘Our lineage comes from him.

Our identity is in the Triune God of (Father-Son-Spirit), and we live in Their eternal embrace.


Enough said!




Blessings All Around,
