God is a community

It is hard to even articulate this, but as I study God I become more and more enamored with the concept the He is a community. He is intimately involved with Himself and perfectly complete in the relationship He has with Himself. The Father, Son, and Spirit show a unity in purpose and an almost pursuit of each other's company. I am floored by the conversations they have with each other in Genesis chapters 1, 3, and 11 and all throughout the Gospels and want to meditate on why He chose to reveal His conversation between the members of the Trinity. I love the interdependence that the universe has within itself (the ecosystem, food chain, the body's pursuit of homeostasis) and what that reveals about God, His church, and us. The Trinity is such a precious truth that it cannot be overstated. God can merely point to Himself as the standard of community irrespective of the love that He receives from the men and women He created.

That, in no small measure, is shrouded in mystery and continues to expose the breadth and depth of the gulf that is transfixed between He and me. It also fills me with gratitude that He pursued me and saved me in the manner in which He did for it shows me how precious I am to Him. And that I can be valued by such an awesome God is something I will never understand.
