“I am the Alpha and the Omega" (Revelation 22:13).
Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet.
Omega is the last letter.
To say Jesus is the Alpha means he is the beginning of all things.
He always was.
To say Jesus it the Omega means he is the end of all things.
He always will be.
The first and the last stand for everything in between.
Think of the 26 letters of the English alphabet.
You can spell any word you like if you know all 26 letters.
In the same way, we are complete in Christ.
Everything we need we find in him.
Jesus is the first and the last.
In him all things have their beginning.
His glory will be their end.
He is the All-Inclusive Lord.
He always was, always is, and always will be.
Before time and throughout eternity, he is Lord.
He is the great I AM.
All that we need, we find in him.
Lord of all things, uphold us by your mighty hand. Amen.
