Young Mark inspected his father’s library and found the Encyclopedia Britannica with its huge volume set. He then asked his father, “How did the authors of these books find letters to fill these thousands of pages of interesting researches and studies?”
The father smiled and explained to his son, “All these volumes contain but 26 English letters. Of these letters, the scholars composed for us this valuable encyclopedia.”
As Mark was astonished at this, his father continued, “Jesus Christ called Himself the Alpha and Omega. If we read the Book of Life, we find the names of those who enjoy the eternal inheritance. They’re all in Christ Jesus and nothing outside of Him. He’s the Alpha and Omega with whom our names will be recorded in the Book of Life.”
Grant me to hide in You,
So that You would engrave my name on Your Divine Palm,
And record it in the Book of Life.
You are the Alpha and Omega.
Without You my name will not be written in heaven.
