ENTERING THE KINGDOM
And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.
We must realize that Christ brings us into His kingdom by dying for us, by bearing our sins in His own body, by being made the Lamb of God for us; that He bears our punishment, and that He is our only way of deliverance and salvation. You believe it and you say:
Just as I am, without one plea
but that Thy blood was shed for me,
and that Thou bid'st me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come.
In other words, it means that you...cast yourself entirely into His hands....And if you do these things, the kingdom of God is within you. You have entered the kingdom, and the kingdom has entered you; you see that He is everything to you, and you are nothing. You see that Christ is "the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end." "He is the lily of the valley: the bright and morning star. He is the fairest of ten thousand to my soul."
Thou, O Christ, art all I want;
More than all in Thee I find.
You just give yourself to Him and acknowledge Him as the Son of God and your personal Savior....Your one desire is to know Him, to be near Him, and to follow Him in order that you may be in glory with Him in the final regeneration when He comes at the end of time.
A Thought to Ponder
Your one desire is to know Him.
