The word “amen” means “truth.” Jesus is “the Amen” — God’s truth personified. We are to add our “amen” to the truth of God. Did your family have any Easter traditions? What were they? Which have you carried on?
Most people believe the word “amen” means “so be it.” But in the Bible, “amen” actually means “truth” or “this is the truth.”
In the Old Testament, the people were to say “amen” following the instructions God gave them. This indicated that they understood the command, acknowledged its truth and accepted its reality in their lives. In the same way, today we are to add our “amen” to the truths and promises of God to indicate that we understand and accept God’s Word as truth in our lives.
In Revelation 3:14, we learn that Jesus is “the Amen”—Jesus is the true representation of the truth of God. Through Him, all God’s promises have been made complete (2 Corinthians 1:20).
