Why is God like a Clover Leaf?

God is Trinity, So are We!

My picture kinda looks like a shamrock, not a clover leaf, but you get the picture. (Must be the Irish in me!). Love the hearts for God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit all love you!

1 Thess 5:23 ¶ And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Scripture reveals God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit. God the Father is upon the throne, Jesus is at His right hand ruling in power, and the Holy Spirit is Emmanuel, the God of power moving in the earth.

So, we are created in the image of God. We are a spirit, that must be born again.
This is the place, deep within us where Jesus comes to live, Christ in us, the hope of glory. If you have never done this, here’s how:

We have a soul, that is our mind, will and emotions, and we live in a body.

Much of the world understands the development of our body (athletics and fitness), and our soul, with great colleges and centers of academia raised up, monuments to the intellect of mankind.

We need to develop in all of these areas, but by far, the greatest need of the earth, is the development of the human spirit, for this is where God acts, moves, speaks, and demonstrates Himself through humanity.

I remember a cute riddle we used to tell the children (often on St. Paddy’s day, the catholic saint famous for bringing the teaching of the Trinity to the forefront of Christianity)

Q. Why is God like a clover leaf?
Well, God is Trinity: God the Father, God the Son (that’s Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit. Yet, notice that one leaf, has three parts. Just like God. There is only one true and living God, yet He reveals Himself as three very separate and distinct persons. The stem, where the sap flows feeds all three parts of the leaf, the sap kinda being like the Spirit that holds the Trinity together.


Q. What is a four leaf clover good luck?
Well, when a person invites Jesus into his heart, he or she gets adopted into the family of God, and we become the bride of Christ. Not everyone has received Jesus yet, so they have not yet been grafted into the vine of God’s love, so, like a four-leaf clover, true Christians living in the Spirit and love of God, are rare, which is why: a four-leaf clover is good luck!

Let’s Pray:
‘Father, I receive the love of Jesus today. Help me to be like a four-leaf clover today, everywhere I go, living in the love, life, and Spirit of Jesus today, as part of your family, Amen!’
