The Great “I AM”

Today I want to look at the center chapters of John’s gospel – chapters 6-15. These chapters contain seven “I am” statements from the Master Himself. The Greek words ego eimi, I am, in John are the same Greek words in the Septuagint when God said to Moses: “I AM WHO I AM.” I think by looking into these statements today, an infusion of His life and sufficiency can empower us.

At this point in the year, I find myself getting very excited for the fall season. One, I love football and cooler weather. Two, fall presents to me the opportunity to deer hunt, a love of mine since I was a small child. I love to get out in the woods and spend time in just solitude. Silence is so refreshing to me (therapeutic I tell my wife). Deer […]
