TALK: Consider some of these ideas:
Then he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give water as a gift from the spring of the water of life. (Revelation 21:6)
Finally, we have a vision of the new creation that God has kept for us. Death and destruction will never have the final word, not as long as our God is the beginning and end of all things.
- What does it mean for God to be the beginning and the end?
- Is there anything that exists outside the realm of God?
- What about the devil? Does the devil exist outside the realm of God?
- Wonder: If God exists outside of time, how can God be the beginning and the end?
PRAY: Faithful God, when all has passed away, you remain. May our hearts be glad and our hope restored, that we might live each day to the praise of your glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
BLESS: May you live within the realm of God, the beginning and the end. Amen.
