And 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 from the spring of the water of life without payment. Revelation 21:6 ESV
Words of comfort to the first century church and for us today as well. It is done! Jesus has taken care of our sin problem, he has provided access to the Father and we can know we are saved in Him. Jesus has provided refreshment for our souls in this dry and parched land.
He gives us the water of life freely. We don’t have to pay for it, we can’t pay for. He payed for it on our behalf and we can revel in his loving kindness.
What an awesome God we have. He has given us a second chance in Jesus. We deserved death, but now we have life eternal. It’s all because he loves us so much. Jesus is our beginning and our end. The world we live in was created through him and our eternal home is being prepared for us.
So today let’s look back to the day when Jesus said “it is finished” and he gave his life for ours. Let’s look back and give thanks for the opportunity to be back in relationship with our heavenly Father. The day is coming when we will be where He is. Let’s look forward to our promised glory.
“This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”Psalm 118:24 ESV
