In this glorious Moment of eternal Resurrection join in celebrating our Lord Jesus perfect sacrifice at the cross and triumphant victory over death!
Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen.
This powerful statement comes from Revelation 1:17–18, where Jesus appears to John in a vision, reassuring him of His resurrection power that transcends time and space. These words echo down through the corridors of time for us today.
Jesus reassures us that we, too, have nothing to fear, for He is the Beginning and the End; the First and the Last. He is the One who conquered death and rose again, demonstrating His power over sin and the grave.
Beloved, even as you face challenges and uncertainties in life, hold fast to the truth of what Jesus’ finished work has done for you. Come to Him just as you are with your fears—whether it is the fear of the future, for your children, about symptoms in your body, of not having enough, of growing old, or of death.
Because He is risen, you can live in peace and confidence, knowing that He is with you wherever you go, supplying the answer to your every need. And if there are any areas of your life that feel broken, know that Jesus perfect love will cast out every fear, restore your life to wholeness, and make it beautiful once more.
What a beautiful and loving Savior we have indeed. Hallelujah!
