I’ll never forget the day I purchased my first Bible. I admit to being romanced by God; I was in the popular “honeymoon phase” of my relationship with Him. My zeal for all things related to Christianity: sermons, scriptures, and Bible paraphernalia was at an all-time high.
I’d carefully written my name inside the cover of my shiny, black Bible. I turned and traced the silk-smooth pages to its first book. Genesis 1:1 reads, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”
There’s a question that’s always lingered as I’ve walked with God. Where was God before the beginning of time? It’s a question many of us have asked, because as finite humans, we understand God linearly. We understand that there are beginnings and endings. We understand life cycles, that we are born, we live, and ultimately, we’ll all physically die.
As spiritual beings, God has rescued us from physical death. And it’s amazing to know that God was, is, and ultimately, will be. Yet what does it mean that God is Alpha and Omega?
