We are to glorify God in a way that is pleasing to Him so as to know Him. To know God is to understand the deep things He has revealed about Himself to us through the scriptures. One of the deep things that God delights in us understanding about Him, is that He is three and yet He is one.
1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
Through this understanding we realise that where one of the Godhead dwells, the other two persons are perfectly represented. The Holy Trio are three separate beings who are so close to one another and share such an intimate interwoven love relationship that even when they are apart, they are the perfect manifestation of one another. Christ during his time on this earth was the perfect representation of God the Father and the Holy Spirit. We must understand that when we enter into a relationship with Christ, we become partakers in this great love relationship that the Godhead shares.
The scriptures reveal that one day those who become one with Christ will share in His inheritance and become joint heirs with Him. If we are to be joint heirs with Christ and to be bestowed with the gifts that the Father has bestowed upon Him, we will be brothers and sisters with Christ and sons and daughters of God.
