God is the Great I Am

God is the Great I Am

In the Bible, Jesus makes several declarations of who he is and his character. He said:

I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.”

I am the light of the world.”

I am the gate for the sheep.”

I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”

I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies.”

I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.”

He also provided insight into his relationship with his Father and his followers:

I am in my Father.”

I am in you.”

I am not alone, for my Father is with me.”

Is this how you see Jesus?

Peter DeHaan writes about biblical spirituality, often with a postmodern slant. He seeks a fresh approach to faith and following God through the lens of scripture, without the baggage of made-up traditions and meaningless practices. Read more in his books, blog, and weekly email updates.
