“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8
The Alpha and the Omega.
The first and last.
The beginning and the end.
The author and finisher.
The creator and consummator.
He is there to get things started.
He is there when things are brought to their end.
Which means He is there every moment in between.
He is there before our first breath
As our cells begin to divide.
He is there at our last breath
When our cells begin to break down.
And every breath in between.
But Alpha and Omega is more.
Those are letters. For language. For communication.
He makes known to us everything we need to know.
Our sin. His great love.
Our helplessness. His amazing grace.
Our weakness. His strength.
Our dignity. His image.
All in Christ. The Alpha and the Omega.
