Always Greater

“When I saw him (Christ), I fell at his feet as dead. But he laid his right hand on me and said, ‘Don’t be afraid! I am the First and Last.’” Revelation 1:17

The season of Easter always remind me of the greatness of Christ. Jesus is bigger than we can ever imagine. He is more than a friend, pal, or good teacher. He is all these things…but more.

In Revelation, the Apostle John sees the risen Christ and immediately falls to the ground. Jesus is unspeakably glorious. He is beyond description…he is beyond words.

I always want to be awed and amazed by Christ. I never want to treat my relationship with him as unimportant. I never want to be indifferent or casual about worshipping him. I want to be overwhelmed by his presence because he is the Alpha and Omega. He is the king of kings and the lord of lords.

It is amazing that such a majestic Savior would offer us love and friendship. No one is greater than Christ. No love is higher than his love. Yet, he offers himself and he offers his love to any who will receive him. His grace is truly amazing…and his grace even includes me!

“The secret of the mystery is: God is always greater. 
No matter how great we think him to be, his love is always greater.” –Brennan Manning
