And Everything In Between

There is a word in our language called “merism.” It means two contrasting parts of a whole to refer to all of the separate parts or describing something from start to finish and everything in between. There are merisms in God’s word; contrasting heaven and hell (Psalm 139-8), present and future and heights and depths (Romans 8:38-39). Others include “He is the Alpha and Omega”, beginning and end, first and last. In each case He is everything in between. Revelation 1:17 Jesus says “I am the first and the last.” I pray He will be our first and last every day. God bless you!
