I am writing to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning.
1 John 2:13 (ESV)

Steps on Your Journey to Know God More Intimately:

  • Ton means he, one, the, and that. Apo means from, of and out of. Arkhay means beginning.
  • Meditate on this name.* What does it mean to you today that God is from the beginning?
  • How does it affect your life knowing He has always been there? He has no beginning … or end. If you’re like me, it’s hard to really comprehend that He has no beginning. Ask the Lord to reveal to you what that means.
  • Spend some time praising the Lord using this name.

A Prayer for You:

Lord, I praise You that You have always existed and You always will. Open my mind to be able to comprehend this truth that You are Him Who Is from the Beginning. Please show me what this name means to me personally.
