I AM, with you always!

THE STORY OF JESUS: John 8:48-59
“Before Abraham was born, I am!” (John 8:58)
For the most part, Jesus only speaks of His human nature.
But here we have a bold hint as to His divine origin.
Jesus makes a number of bold “I AM” statements.
And for the Jews, the “I AM” name was so holy, it should not be spoken.
God first named Himself ““I AM WHO I AM” (Exodus 3:14) to Moses.
The name is mysterious, leaving open what and Who exactly God is.
Jesus fills out the meaning: I AM the bread of life, the resurrection, the way, etc.
In other words, ‘I AM everythning you need (not want) Me to be!’
In Jesus, we find the fullness of God, the fullness that we need!
“In Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form.
And in Christ you have been brought to fullness.” (Colossians 2:9-10)

I believe that Jesus is the key to the mystery of God.
I believe that Jesus is the source to the fullness of LIFE.
Jesus links us to the eternal God, the everlasting, never-failing I AM!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, YOU ARE everything I need, the key to God and life to the full! In You I find the God I need, the God I am looking for.

  1. Honouring God.
    In complete obedience to God.
    Doing what the Father desires.
    Jesus teaches me how to live in complete obedience.
    In Christ alone I see what God wants me to be.

    No guilt in life, no fear in death
    This is the power of Christ in me
    From life’s first cry to final breath
    Jesus commands my destiny
    No power of hell, no scheme of man
    Can ever pluck me from His hand
    Till He returns or calls me home
    Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand
