Consider Jesus: The Amen

Let us continue to “consider Jesus.” (Heb. 3:1) 

Rev. 3:14 “And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this:”

Amen means “true” or “steadfast and firm.”  We say “amen” to signal our assent to the fact that what we have heard is true.  We most often do this after prayers.  Jesus is our statement of confirming truth.  By Him, His life, character, power and promises we know the truth.  2 Cor. 1:20   “For as many as may be the promises of God, in Him they are yes; wherefore also by Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us.”  What we know of Him is our confidence to believe every promise of God.  Whatever God has said can be “amen’ed” (stated and fully known as true) because of Jesus.  The more we consider Him the more our confidence in the complete truth of all that God has spoken to us.
