A New Beginning

These verses are relevant to each one of our lives. The Lord Jesus Christ is the “Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last” (Revelation 22:13). He is the author and finisher of our faith (2).In Exodus 3:14, God told Moses to say that “I Am” had sent him. In John 8:58, Jesus said, “before Abraham was, I Am.”

The Lord Jesus Christ takes beginnings and brings them to an end. He takes the ends and gives believers brand new beginnings. Jesus told Peter that there was to be no end to how often he forgave a brother that sinned against him (3). He was not only to forgive, but also to forget (4). The Lord’s mercies and compassions are new every morning (5). They never run out! He loved His own even to the end (6).What was an end to the disciples became a brand new beginning for them when Christ was resurrected.

Many times, it seems like we have come to an end of our natural resources. Then, we find that the Holy Spirit liberates us with a new start. Is today an end, or is it a brand new beginning with our Lord Jesus Christ?
