The second line of the Nicene Creed is that we believe in the Father almighty. The Trinity is no difficult to say or even understand we believe there is but One only, the living and true God. The one true and living God There are three persons in the Godhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one God, the same in substance, equal in power and glory (WSC 4-5). When we use earthly examples to explain the Trinity, they always fall short because God is not like creation because he is the creator. This is called the Creator/Creature distinction. This glorious doctrine means that God understands us, but we cannot understand all of him because he is eternal, infinite, and unchangeable. This is a glorious doctrine because this means that men did not make God.
We believe in the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth of all things visible and invisible. The opening verse of the Bible teaches this truth. “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen 1:1). Many people seek to explain the world’s workings, not even without God’s help but deliberately seeking to explain God away. However, the Bible teaches us that God made all things out of nothing in the space of six days (Heb 11:3). The Creed explains that the Father, the first person of the Trinity, is the Father of all creation. That the Father is the maker of Heaven and earth. Later in the Creed, it will make so the second sense of God the Father as the Father of His only Son of God.
The Creed initially focuses on God the Father as the creator of all things visible and invisible. The critical doctrine of the Father’s power to create all things out of nothing in the space of six days can be challenging for us to wrap our brains around. However, we should think of this in our prayer life. We pray, Our Father, we pray to the same God who made the mountains, stars, our intricate bodies. We pray to the all-powerful Father. Last week, we might see that even if we cannot say much, we can still hold fast to the truth that We believe in one God. After we can utter those words, we should stop and pray to God the Father, who made the heavens and the earth. Even the fact that we can call him Father, as our creator, has adopted us into his household.
