This year we celebrate the year “three”—
The start of Light Women’s Ministry.
Now bear with me and in the bible you will see
There are many references to the number three.
John gives a summary of the following three days:
On the first day, people asked, “John, are you the way?”
“Of course not,” is his reply, as he makes the path straight.
Day two, he points to Jesus, “the Lamb of God!” John proclaims.
Day three, there was a wedding where a first miracle took place
When Christ turned water into wine, can you imagine each face?
Now let’s look at the gospels: Matthew, Mark, and Luke—
Where Christ predicts his death three times and then it comes true.
And what about Peter denying Christ those three times?
Suppose he didn’t realize just how well known he was to Christ.
Then there’s Pilate, who asked three times, “what has this man done?”
He didn’t want to sentence him, but it was the crowd that won.
So there he hung, between two criminals, for a total of three to die.
His love, compassion, and mercy reached across the sky.
And Jesus was crucified on that dark black day.
Then came back as our Savior on that much predicted third day.
Yes, there is something special with the number three—
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are the Trinity.
These three work together, both individually and apart,
In the lives of the Christ believers who set Him in their heart.
2 Corinthians 13:14, May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
