THOUGHT OF THE DAY

May 28,2020

Jesus is the Great “I Am”.

Matthew 11:29-30 AMP
[29] Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple],
•*• for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST (renewal, blessed quiet) FOR YOUR SOULS. [30] For My yoke is easy [to bear] and My burden is light.”

John 6:35 AMP
[35] Jesus replied to them, “I am the Bread of Life. The one who comes to Me will never be hungry, and the one who believes in Me [as Savior] will never be thirsty [for that one will be sustained spiritually].

•*•[35 Jesus uses the words “I am” over twenty times in the Gospel of John. Especially memorable are those places where “I am” is followed by a metaphor that declares His deity and His relationship to mankind as Savior (this is the first of seven such references); see 8:12 (Light); 10:9 (Door); 10:11 (Good Shepherd); 11:25 (Resurrection); 14:6 (Way, Truth, Life); 15:5 (Vine).]

John 8:12 AMP
[12] Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said, “I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

John 10:9 AMP
[9] I am the Door; anyone who enters through Me will be saved [and will live forever], and will go in and out [freely], and find pasture (spiritual security).

John 10:11 AMP
[11] I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down His [own] life for the sheep.

John 11:25 AMP
[25] Jesus said to her, “I am the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, relies on) Me [as Savior] will live even if he dies;

John 14:6 AMP
[6] Jesus said to him, “I am the [only] Way [to God] and the [real] Truth and the [real] Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

John 15:5 AMP
[5] I am the Vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him bears much fruit, for [otherwise] apart from Me [that is, cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.

John 18:4-6 AMP
[4] Then Jesus, knowing all that was about to happen to Him, went to them and asked, “Whom do you want?”
[5] They answered Him, “Jesus the Nazarene.” Jesus said, “I am He.” And Judas, who was betraying Him, was also standing with them.
•*•[6] When Jesus said, “I am He,” they drew back and fell to the ground.
