Week Five of reading through the Bible has Jesus describing in rich images who He is. He has shown throughout a myriad of miracles that He is from God. Now, He explains in a series of "I Am" statements what that means in real terms in our lives.
I Am the Bread of Life
"Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life;
whoever comes to me shall not hunger,
and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.'"
He nourishes, He fills, He sustains.
I Am the Light of the World
"Again Jesus spoke to them, saying,
'I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life.'”
He lights our path, He protects, He gives direction.
I Am the Door
"I am the door.
If anyone enters by me,
he will be saved
and will go in and out
and find pasture."
I Am the Good Shepherd
"I am the good shepherd.
The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep."
He sacrifices, He defends, He owns.
I Am the Vine
"I am the vine;
you are the branches.
Whoever abides in me and I in him,
he it is that bears much fruit,
for apart from me
you can do nothing."
I Am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life
"Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, and the truth, and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.'"
He points, He directs, He leads.
I Am the Resurrection and the Life
"Jesus said to her,
'I am the resurrection
and the life.
though he die,
yet shall he live,
shall never die.
Do you believe this?'”
He raises, He revives,
My God and My Savior, what more could I ask?
