Consider Jesus: I Am

Let us continue to “consider Jesus.” (Heb. 3:1) 

What a person says about themselves is of great importance. To get to know about a person that you have never met you can use two sources to find out about him.  You examine what he says and/or what others say about him. But only in what they themselves say are you assured that you can know their inner thoughts and views. 

Jesus, especially in the gospel of John, said many things about Himself.  Some of those things are:

I am the resurrection and the life   Jn. 11:1-4
I am the Son of GodJn. 5
I am the bread of lifeJn. 6
I am from HimJn. 7:14-30  
I am the light of the world   Jn. 9:1-5; 8:12
I am the Door of the Sheep   Jn. 10:1-10
I am the good shepherdJn. 10:17,18
I am the way, the truth, and the life   Jn. 14:6
I am in the FatherJn. 14:6-11
I am the vine Jn 15
I am king Jn. 18:37

As important to us as all great truths that things are, we should also consider one great “I am” statement in Matthew. Jesus assures us that “For where two or three have gathered together in My name, there I am in their midst.” (Matt. 18:20)
