My husband and son surfed television channels looking for a movie to watch and discovered that their favorite movies were already in progress. As they enjoyed watching the final scenes, the search became a game. They managed to find eight of their favorite flicks. Frustrated, I asked why they wouldn’t just choose a movie to watch from the beginning. My husband laughed. “Who doesn’t love a great ending?”
I had to admit I too look forward to the endings of my favorite books or movies. I’ve even skimmed through my Bible and focused on my favorite parts or the stories that seem more palatable and easier to understand. But the Holy Spirit uses all of God’s reliable and life-applicable words to transform us and affirm that His story will end well for believers in Jesus.
The Lord declares Himself to be “the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End” (Revelation 22:13). He proclaims that His people will inherit eternal life (v. 14) and warns those who dare add or subtract from the Word (vv. 18–19).
We may not know or understand everything in Scripture, but we do know Jesus is coming again. He’ll keep His word. He’ll demolish sin, right every wrong, make all things new, and reign as our loving King forever. Now, that’s a great ending that leads to our new beginning!
Thanks for joining me for this Saturday edition of Our Daily Bread. I'm Sergio Dixon I share how God revealed the profound truth through a funny moment with my family.
In today's reading, a great ending. My husband and son surf television channels looking for a movie to watch and discovered that their favorite movies were already in progress as they enjoyed watching the final scenes. The search became a game they managed to find eight of their favorite flicks frustrated. I asked why they wouldn't just choose a movie to watch from the beginning.
My husband laughed. Who doesn't love a great ending. I had to admit, I too look forward to the endings of my favorite books or movies. I even skim through my Bible and focused on my favorite parts or the stories it seem more palatable and easier to understand.
But the Holy Spirit uses all of God's reliable and life applicable words to transform us and to affirm that his story will end well for believers in Jesus.
In Revelation 22. Christ declares himself to be the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end he proclaims that his people will inherit eternal life and warns those who dare to add or subtract from the words of the prophecy of the scroll we may not know or understand everything in the Bible, but we do know Jesus is coming again. He'll keep his word shall demolish sin right every wrong make all things new and rain as our loving team forever. Now that's a great ending that leads to our new beginning today is Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Revelation chapter 22 verses 12 to 21. Look, I am coming soon. My reward is with me and I will give to each person according to what they have done.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.
Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may go to the gates into the city outside of the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murders that idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. I Jesus have sent my Angels to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright morning star. The Spirit and the bride say, come. And let the one who hearsay.
Come let the one who is thirsty, and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life. I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of the scroll.
If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person. The plagues described in the scroll and if anyone takes words away from the scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person. Any share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in the scroll he who testifies to these things says yes I am coming soon. Amen. Come, Lord, the grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's people. Amen. Let's pray mighty and merciful Jesus, thank you for assuring us that everything revolves around you. The first and the last, the beginning and the end. Thanks for being with us as we trust you until you come again. We love you we need to we worship you. Please come, Lord Jesus, come in Jesus name we pray. Amen. All today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
