Our title of Christ today is Omega; a title you are no doubt familiar with but one with depths we can search eternally. In scripture, the title is paired with Alpha—the beginning and the end; completion—and is used four separate times by Christ Himself. It is a title that reveals the full, unending character of our Savior. It establishes Christ as Creator and Completer.

We live in a scattered world where many things are initiated and nearly as many are left incomplete as new endeavors are ever beckoning. Fulfillment is constantly sought but seldom achieved. Yet Jesus Christ, who spoke the world into being, leaves nothing undone. That which He began at creation continues; that which He completed at the Cross—our redemption--is assured. We can join in Paul’s assertion of Philippians 1:6:

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

Christ’s designation as the Alpha and Omega is a comforting reminder that He is faithful. He will not leave us even when we forget Him. His enduring nature, His wholeness, is His essence. Our souls, committed to the Christ are created and complete in Him. He is the author and the finisher of our faith. There is peace and rest in understanding Jesus as the Alpha and Omega.

Jesus is the fulfillment every soul seeks. He is the completion of every desire. May we live with a moment by moment recognition of this title of our Lord!
