From the beginning to the end …

“‘I am the Beginning and the End’, says the Lord God” (Revelation 1:8).
We think about the past – and we know that we cannot change it. We think about the future – and we don’t know what it holds for us. All we have is the present. We think about the past and the future – and we ask, “What does the Lord have to say to us?” In the beginning, he loved us. At the end, he will love us. God’s Word comes to us from the past – and it will guide us in our journey towards the future. His Word is filled with love, light and life. The light that shines upon our way is the light of his love. It’s the light of his love that is leading us on to eternal life. This is what makes sense of our life in the here-and-now – the love that comes to us from the eternal God, the love that leads us on to our eternal salvation.
