52 Weeks: #5 Jesus said, "I Am"

February 01, 2015  •  3 Comments

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.'" 

John 6:35

 

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.'”

John 8:12

 

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.

 

John 10:9

 

He protects,

He guards,

He enfolds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I Am the Good Shepherd

"I am the good shepherd.

The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep."

 

John 10:11-15

 

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.

 

John 15:5

 

He connects,

He strengthens,

He enables.

 

 

 

 

 

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.'"

 

John 14:6

 

He points, He directs, He leads.

 

I Am the Resurrection and the Life

"Jesus said to her,

'I am the resurrection

and the life.

Whoever believes

in me,

though he die,

yet shall he live, 

and everyone

who lives

and believes

in me

shall never die.

Do you believe this?'”

John 11:25

He raises, He revives,

He regenerates.

 

 

My God and My Savior, what more could I ask?
