A daily devotional exploring the names of God in scripture. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com.

  1. Thanks for joining me today for "A Little Walk with God." I'm your host Richard Agee.
  2. Alpha, the name that puts God first in everything.
  3. Scripture
    1. Revelation 22:13
    2. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
  4. Devotional
    1. God calls himself the Alpha and Omega
    2. Wikipedia information
      1. Alpha (uppercase Α, lowercase α; Greek: Άλφα Álpha) is the first letter of the Greek alphabet. In the system of Greek numerals it has a value of 1.
      2. It was derived from the Phoenician and Hebrew letter aleph - an ox or leader.
      3. Letters that arose from alpha include the Latin A and the Cyrillic letter А.
      4. In English, the noun "alpha" is used as a synonym for "beginning", or "first" (in a series), reflecting its Greek roots.
      5. The letter alpha represents various concepts in physics and chemistry, including alpha radiation, angular acceleration, alpha particles, alpha carbon and strength of electromagnetic interaction (as Fine-structure constant). Alpha also stands for thermal expansion coefficient of a compound in physical chemistry. It is also commonly used in mathematics in algebraic solutions representing quantities such as angles. Furthermore, in mathematics, the letter alpha is used to denote the area underneath a normal curve in statistics to denote significance level when proving null and alternative hypotheses. In zoology, it is used to name the dominant individual in a wolf or dog pack.
    3. Why bring up the information from Wikipedia?
      1. It gives us more insight into the name of God
      2. Think about the name and how the earliest writers described Him and understood Him
      3. The letter meant ox or leader, the strongest of their animals, which could plow their toughest fields, pull their heaviest loads, yet came alongside them to help them with those tasks when asked
      4. Leader - the one who provides the resources to get tasks done. The one who provides the guidance for which tasks need to be completed in the first place. The one who protects, provides, cares for, and guides those in His charge.
      5. First, preeminent, not just the first in a series of events or a line of objects, but first in everything
      6. Even as the term has been co-opted in math and science, you see the power and prominence of the name, alpha radiation, the first particles released; the thermal expansion coefficient of a compound, how much energy it releases, the dominant individual in a pack.
      7. Alpha - first in all things
    4. The God we serve is first.
      1. He will accept no other place in our lives
      2. Worship Him today
      3. Remember to keep Him as Alpha in your life
  5. If you want to learn more about my church, you can find us at SAF.church. If you like the devotional, share it with someone. If you don't, tell me. I hope you’ll join me again tomorrow for "A Little Walk with God."
