“Alpha” is the first letter of the Greek alphabet. “Omega” is its last letter. This name of Jesus therefore communicates completeness, fullness. It is obviously similar to His name upon which we meditated yesterday, The First and the Last. Jesus called Himself both of these names in the book of Revelation, which was written in Greek.
In English we would say Jesus Christ is the “A to Z.” Anything that is “A to Z” covers the subject in question. The subject in question here is “everything.” Thus the point is that the Lord Jesus Christ covers everything.
As with The First and the Last, “The Alpha and the Omega” emphasizes Jesus’ importance and relevance to our lives. How can you make Him a footnote when He’s the whole alphabet?
Don’t let Jesus Christ be a footnote to your life; let Him be the whole story.
Call on His Name: The Alpha and the Omega.
