When is a time when God became real to you in your life?
Focus: For Jesus to be the “I am” means that He is all-inclusive and is everything we need!
There are many instances in the book of John where Jesus says the phrase “I am…”
Read the verses below and find what Jesus is in each verse (in some verses He is more than one thing): John 6:35, 8:12, 10:11, 11:25, 14:6, 15:1.
Now read John 8:58. What is Jesus in this verse?
To say that the Lord is the I Am means that He is whatever we need. It is like having a blank check on which you may fill in the amount that you need. Be bold to write in a big amount. What you write in is up to you. The Lord is everything you need (Col. 3:11). Now it’s up to you to fill in what you actually need. He is the great I Am.
