Honestly, it isn't something I've really every thought about. I don't use the term "trinity" either. It is a difficult concept to put into words. I think the first chapter of the book of John is a good starting point for explanation of Jesus' role in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He was with God- a part of God- even before the world was created. He became Jesus- the Son- in order to come down in the flesh. As a side note, this is the verse I use when someone asks me why I believe in creation. The Bible says that Jesus is the Word, and that through him- not some big bang- the world was made.
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning.
3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood[a] it.
6There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. 7He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. 8He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. 9The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.[b]
10He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13children born not of natural descent,[c] nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.
14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,[d] who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

This may be completely wrong, but I always think of God as the "Supreme Being" and Jesus was God in human form.I believe that Jesus was completely human while on Earth, and had all the power of God, but didn't draw on it. I believe He did EVERYTHING through God's power. And the Holy Spirit is God's spirit that is here on Earth to comfort us and fill our bodies. We are the "body" now--well thats what we are supposed to be--and the Holy Spirit fills us. Our old self is gone when the Spirit dwells in us. Like I said, this could be horribly wrong, but it's how I understand it. It's not three Gods, but one God in three forms. John 14 says the Holy Spirit is sent by God as His Helper. Which to me, is having Jesus's spirit in your heart and allowing Him to guide you since He could not remain on Earth.
"What I do today must be important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it."
I've always had the trinity explained to me as an equilateral triangle. God the Father at the top angle, and Jesus and the Holy Spirit on either bottom angle. They are each a separate angle, but all part of the same triangle, being God. Not sure if that's way off, but I've always been taught it that way.
