|Jesus IS CALLED I AM
Look at Jesus, He is God.
Often others ask, “What is God like?”
John’s gospel records Our Lord.
Seven times, Jesus is called ‘I AM.’
His divine character is revealed.
BREAD ~ ‘I am the bread of life, He who come to me
will never go hungry.’ John 6:35
LIGHT ~ ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows
me will never walk in darkness.’ John 8:12
GATE ~ ‘I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.’
GOOD SHEPHERD ~ ‘I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd
lays down his life for the sheep.’ John 10:10
RESURRECTION and LIFE ~ ‘I am the resurrection and the life. He
who believes in me will live, even though he dies.’ John 11:25
WAY, TRUTH, LIFE ~ ‘I am the way, truth and the life. No-one
comes to the Father except through me.’ John 14:6
TRUE VINE ~ ‘I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.’ John 15:1
Lord, you spoke in parables or stories.
Knowing your children couldn’t understand.
Comparing yourself, many times with earthly things.
Your words open blind eyes and deaf ears.
Give gifts of wisdom ~ our understanding.
Fill our hearts, with your truth, love, hope, joy and faith.
Providing courage ~ share and speak into a crowd.
We can’t live without earthly bread, a starved body be.
A hungry earthly spirit wanders aimlessly.
We can not see in utter darkness, we stumble constantly.
Your spiritual light provides security ~ alone to never be.
Earthly gates keep things out, ~ unless, we have the key.
Your precious blood, opens heaven’s gates, Our Heavenly Father there awaits.
Good Shepherd ~ leaves safe bedded flock, searches least desirable of these.
Our shepherd, Jesus bore all worldly sin ~ upon himself.
Sweet Jesus, you lived a sinless human life and sacrificed ALL.
Your human body died and arose from chains of death.
Poured your blood upon Father’s mercy seat, atonement all earthly sin.
Built our return bridge ~ Our Father and His lost Creation of men.
Our opportunity and choice ~ returns loving Heavenly Father ~ mankind wins.
Our physical bodies will die, our spirits will soar ~ Heaven bound.
We give our hearts to You, precious Savior ~ our destiny changed.
Assured eternal life ~ our spirits and souls ~ will never die.
The Seven ~ I Am's ~ Jesus Christ.
God Bless Each and Everyone of You
