I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give water as a gift from the spring of the water of life. Revelation 21:6
In another place, the author of Revelation speaks of God “who was, who is, and who is to come.” We Christians seem to be living in the time/space continuum just like everyone else. What is the realm revealed by these words? Why are these words comforting?
Think of the story of the Woman at the Well (John 4:1-42) Think of your own life and the challenges of your life today. Do you feel thirsty for the water of life?
When Jesus spoke with Nicodemus he promised eternal life to those who believed in him. In the words of this verse, Christ promises “the water of life.” In the context of all the gifts God gives to human beings, what is clearly the most precious gift of all? Why is life so precious to God?
If you could stand in heaven with Christ and look back at the world of time and space, what do you think would be the most grievous sight Christ and you would see in that world?
