Alpha and Omega

Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega. The Beginning and the End. The First and the Last.  All things begin with Him. And they will end with Him.

He is the author and finisher of our faith.  It begins with Jesus, and it ends with him. He died on the cross for the forgiveness of sins.  God raised him from the dead.  Jesus did his part.

When we hear the good news, and we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.  We become a new creation.  We are born-again by the power and life the of Holy Spirit. 

When I got saved, I got on my hands and knees as a step of faith.  I asked the Lord into my heart.  I immediately got into bed and went to sleep.  The next morning I awoke.  Something had changed.  I don’t remember sleeping, just going to bed and waking up.  The Lord saved me.  I felt like a t-shirt turned inside-out, only it was like I was turned the right way for the first time. 

Jesus had to come and die on the Cross, so that I could be saved.  He had to be raised from the dead.  It all begins with Jesus.  Then, someone had to proclaim the gospel.  In this case, it was somone who talked to me about the Lord, and film at a Christian meeting.  Then, I had to take a step of faith and receive the Lord.  And, then Jesus did the rest.  I woke up a different person.
