#89 FIRST AND THE LAST

"And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as a dead man.  And He laid His right hand upon me, saying " Do not be afraid; I am the FIRST AND THE LAST, and the Living One;"  Revelation 1:17

"And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: The FIRST AND THE LAST, who was dead, and has come to life, says this:"  Revelation 2:8

DEFINITION OF FIRST

:  preceding all others in time, order, or importance

DEFINTION OF LAST

:  after all others :  at the end :  in conclusion

Jesus, You are the FIRST AND THE LAST!  You preceeded all others in time - and You are after all others and will be here at the end!  You appeared to John on the Island called Patmos - and spoke these words to him.  You told him not to be afraid - You are the FIRST AND THE LAST!  Jesus, You are so MUCH MORE than my mind can comprehend - and You are so MUCH GREATER than my limited view of You.  My perspective is so small - and the things of this world seem so overwhelming.  But You were here from the beginning and You will be here in the end. You always existed and always will exist.  You are with me and You have a plan.  You were dead and You have come to life!!  What a comfort it is to know that You have it all in control - nothing is a surprise to You!!  You are the FIRST AND THE LAST!!  I worship You my Jesus!!

Worship and praise Jesus - the FIRST AND THE LAST!

(Is your perspective of Jesus too small?)
