Jesus Christ – The Great I AM

Jesus Christ is the Bread of Life

John 6:35 And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.

Jesus Christ is what sustains us. Just as Israel ate the manna in the wilderness and died so too we must eat – we must partake of the Word but when we do so we will live. This Bread sustains and fills. We will never hunger or thirst again

He gives Life. He is also the Light

Jesus Christ is the Light of the world

John 8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

He is the precious Light of the World. In the beginning was the Word. In the beginning everything was dark. The Spirit hovered over the darkness – waiting – on the Word!!!!!

Just as the Word brought Life to the universe – He also brought Light. He illuminates sin. He eradicates death. He is the Light and He is the Life

Jesus Christ is the Life, He is the Light, He is also the Door.

Jesus Christ is the Door

John 10:7  Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.

 Jesus Christ is the only answer for mankind. He is the Door for the sheep and just as the door to the ark was the only way into salvation – so Jesus is. God had to close that door and He is the only way to enter into the salvation of God

Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd

John 10:11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.

He paid the ultimate sacrifice for us. He gave His blood. His Life for ours. He then gives us His Life and Light

Jesus Christ is the Resurrection and the Life

John 11:25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.

Christianity hinges on the resurrection of Jesus. No other religion = no other way can say that. Jesus Christ died on the cross. He was buried in a tomb but He was raised from the dead and He is alive and well. Buddha can’t say that, L.Ron Hubbard can’t say that, Aleister Crowley can’t say that, Joseph Smith can’t say that.

Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Jesus Christ is the narrow road! He is the Gateway!! He is the Door and He is the Only Way to the Father. Salvation comes from no other source!!!!

Jesus Christ is the truth!! He is the Word. He sets us free!!! He is the Gospel that saves

He is the Life. He gives us life and life more abundantly

Jesus Christ is the True Vine

John 15:1 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.

He is the True Vine. We must abide in Him in order to strive. He is the Author and Finisher of our faith and it is through abiding that we have access to our Lord
