What is the Triunity of Creation?

Last week we addressed how we can better understand the doctrine of the Trinity by finding the Scripture verses and passages that reveals God as Three-in-One. While the word "trinity" is not found in the Bible, there are revelations about our Triune God from Genesis to Revelation. Another way to understand God as Triune is to see His pattern of triunity in creation. Triunity (the quality or state of being triune or three in union) is very evident in our world and in our lives. As Christians we can see this triunity as a reflection of God's being and as His "signature" as Creator. Consider now the triunity of creation. We invite and welcome additions to this list.
