I BELIEVE …NICENE CREED Part 2

The Nicene Creed summarizes the story of Scripture. Moving from creation to Christ’s Incarnation, Death and Resurrection, to the sending of the Holy Spirit, to the era of the Church and finally, and then forward to the Second Coming, the Creed carries us through the entire story of salvation history. In one short statement of faith, we draw out the narrative thread from Genesis to the book of Revelation: Creation, Fall, Redemption. And we do so with a keen eye to the three divine Persons who are the principal Actors in this drama: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. In other words, “What the Scriptures say at length, the creed says briefly.” The Nicene Creed begins with “I Believe...” It’s easy to under-appreciate what the words “I Believe…” mean.  We can say, “I believe the Dallas Cowboys are going to win the Super Bowl”.  But in saying this, I am merely stating my opinion (.,. and some would say, “my ignorance”).   However, that is different than saying, “I Believe in One God…”  For example, it’s like needing to have major surgery.  When you choose the doctor who will perform your surgery, you place your faith in him.  If you don’t believe in his abilities, then you wouldn’t allow him to operate on you.  But by believing in his skills as a doctor, you place your life in his hands.  That’s the way it is with us when we say, “I Believe in One God…”  We are more accurately saying, “I Believe in, am putting my trust in, and placing my entire life in One God…”  Let’s take a brief look at what exactly I believe in.  “I believe in One God, the Father Almighty…”  There is only One God.   And God is Our Father, just as Jesus taught us how to pray – “Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be your name…” (Matt 6:9).  In Baptism, we become Sons and Daughters of God, which truly makes God, Our Father!  “I believe in One Lord, Jesus Christ…"  Belief in Jesus is still belief in One God, for “the Father and I are One” (John 10:30).  “I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of Life …” It is the Holy Spirit Who is the very life of the Church.  That’s why St. Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “… our qualification comes from God, who has indeed qualified us as ministers of a new covenant, not of letter but of spirit; for the letter brings death, but the Spirit gives life.”  (2 Cor. 3:6).  It is the Spirit Who is working through us in our lives!
