Jesus is The Alpha and the Omega, The Beginning and the End

Jesus, as is written in the book of Revelation proclaimed Himself to be the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End:

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty. (Revelation 1:8)

Alpha is the first letter in the Greek alphabet and Omega is the last letter. In claiming to be the beginning and the end Jesus states that He existed before the creation of the world and that He will continue to exist after this world has come to an end. In this statement Jesus claims to be God, the creator of heaven and earth.

The connotation of this statement is that Jesus has always been there for us, that He is there for us now and that He will be there even at the end of our age when He returns in glory at His second coming.

We, who seek to be like our Savior Jesus, should do the same. We should be there to care for the loved ones that we have been given. We should be there in the beginning, in the current time, and in the future. We certainly need to be there for our families and our Christian brothers and sisters.
