“And He also said, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and Omega-the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life””
Today’s world is full of uncertainty. We read of perilous financial times in Greece, wars and terrorism across the world and violent acts of murder across the lands. Yet there is one person that is sure and consistent in this ever changing world, JESUS CHRIST!
Before time even began, Jesus was. He was before Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He was there when the world was first formed. He didn’t just exist after He was born as a Human on Earth. He has always existed. As the writer of Revelation tells us in his wonderful descriptive words, Jesus is and will always be the First and the Last, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. He is our Constant in an ever changing world. He is our Hope when we live around such great uncertainty. He is our Security when life seems full of fear. He is our Protection, our Guide, and our Sustainer.
What’s more, we have the promise that if we are thirsty for Him, He will quench our thirst and reveal more of Himself to those who are seeking Him. The more we put our trust in Him, the less we need to worry about the calamities around us. His refreshing springs from the water of life, provide healing for our scars, freedom for our bondage and liberation from our sins. Although this passage talks about life after Jesus’ final victory, we can experience that blessing now, here on earth. Jesus is alive today. He can work in our situations today. He is alive, He is not dead and He reigns victoriously giving faith and hope to all who seek Him. Put your trust in the the Kings of Kings and Lord of Lords.
