“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life.”

A word is the expression of an invisible thought or an idea. Jesus is the visible expression of the invisible God. Jesus articulates God. He is God’s first Word. He was there in the beginning, “In the beginning was the Word” (John 1:1). He is God’s full Word. He says in the Book of Revelation that He’s “the Alpha and the Omega” (Revelation 22:13). Do you know what that means? The first and last letters of the Greek alphabet are alpha and omega. If He were speaking to us today, He’d say He was the ‘A’ and the ‘Z.’ Libraries have hundreds and hundreds of books on their shelves. But all of them are made up of just 26 letters. Every thought in every library is only 26 letters. What Jesus is saying is, “I’m God’s alphabet. Anything that God’s going to say, He’s going to say through Me and by Me.”
Take time today to write out the entire English alphabet as an exercise to remember that Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.
