Jesus – The Great “I AM”

Out of the burning bush, the Lord declared, “I AM that I AM”,
This was the voice of the Precious Lamb.

So who is He, and who are we?
Continue reading and you will see.

From the Gospel of John, the eight “I AM” statements will be revealed,
May this bless you and may your hearts be filled.

“I AM the Bread of Life” and the church shall I wed,
I am a partaker of the body of He who rose from the dead.

“I AM the Light of the world” for all to see,
I am gifted with the vision He has given to me.

“I AM the Door” for all to be saved,
I am a follower of the path He paved.

“I AM the Good Shepherd” who will give my life for the sheep,
I am a lamb who knows His voice, and heaven shall I reap.

“I AM the Resurrection and the Life” for all who believe in me,
I am soldier of Christ, and for Him I will bow to my knee.

“I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life” to the Father above,
I am a child of the Almighty God, and daily I experience His love.

“I AM the True Vine” in which you will find your root,
I am a branch and He cares for me so that I will bear fruit.

“Before Abraham was I AM” even before the creation of all,
I am made in His image, and He will never let me fall.

I am with I AM and I hope you will join us too,
For salvation is a gift from the great “I AM” to both me and you.

Romans 8:38-39 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
