 alpha and omega

There’s something comforting about knowing that God is “Alpha and Omega,” beginning and end of all things. I suppose for some it might seem like a threat of doom — God will be the death of us all. But for me, God being the beginning and the end means God is all encompassing. Before me, there was God. After me, there will be God. That means every second of every day of my life, there is God.

A weight is lifted when I consider all things in my life are touched by an all-present and unending God. I don’t have to bear the burden of the trials of life. God bears that burden. I don’t have to be punished (accountable, yes) for all the things I’ve done that warrant punishment. God has already forgiven my sins. Knowing there will never be a day when my grace from God runs out means I can live my life as fully as God intends.
