These are two very powerful words; they are strong and demand attention.
But for me these words also bring comfort. Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega; the Beginning and the End. There is so much in between those two words, in between those two names.
Alpha (Friend. Redeemed. Forgiven. Free. Confident. Assured.) Omega
This is who I am in the great I AM. This is who you are in the great I AM.
When I look at this title, and what the Alpha and Omega truly means, it reassures me that I will never be left alone. Christ has been with me from my start and He will be with me through my finish. He will be with me when I need a friend; when I need redemption; when I need to be forgiven; when I am seeking freedom; when I need confidence and when I need assurance.
By having a relationship with Christ we can feel these things, we can develop a relationship in which we will always know our Beginning and we will always know our End. To quote Teresa from this book, “Jesus wants to be your best friend.” He wants us to have all of these things in abundance. He wants to be there in our Beginning and in our End.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for showing us our beginning and our end. Thank You for being there in our lives for both, and through all the in-between. Lord, You offer us friendship and redemption. You offer us things we do not deserve; Your love always remains. Your gift of friendship always remains. Lord, help us to walk in the power of Your promises and in Your covering. Most importantly, help us to be an example to others of what it means to be a friend of the I AM. In Jesus’ name we pray.
