From my reading in Luke 3 in the One Year New Testament.
One of the only moments where people were able to observe all three members of the trinity at once was the baptism of Jesus. Luke writes it this way.
“One day when the crowds were being baptized, Jesus himself was baptized. As he was praying, the heavens opened, and the Holy Spirit, in bodily form, descended on him like a dove. And a voice from heaven said, “You are my dearly loved Son, and you bring me great joy.” Luke 3:21–22
Jesus was being baptized, symbolizing the start of his public ministry.
The Holy Spirit descended on him to show us his endorsement.
The Father clearly said Jesus was his beloved son who gives Him great joy.
The trinity is one God and three distinct persons, and those three persons were observed at the moment of Jesus baptism. After that moment the trinity kept working together on Christ’s redeeming mission.
Jesus was led by the Spirit and prayed to the Father regularly. He depended upon the Father and the Holy Spirit daily for relationship and guidence. In the same way we should depend up on the trinity in our walk with God.
When we receive Christ we experience fellowship with the Trinity.
When we enter a relationship with Jesus, we also have the privilege of relating to all three members of the Trinity. The Holy Spirit guides and convicts us. Through prayer we have unhindered access to the Father with Jesus as our mediator! What a privilege!
