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.
