“Whoever keeps my word will never see death.”
“Who are you claiming to be?” they asked Him. “Are you greater than our father Abraham?” Jesus answered them, “…before Abraham ever was, I Am.” What a bold and awe-inspiring statement! Jesus claims both pre-existence and to be one with God. I AM. Timeless, loving, all powerful.
The Jews questioned Jesus because they could not understand Him. We too are often filled with questions.
– Lord, can you cure me of my illnesses?
I Am the one who heals.
– I struggle to make ends meet, will you help me?
I Am your provider.
– What does the future hold? I fear what I do not know.
I Am your all seeing and all-knowing guide.
– Will you cleanse me of my sin and shame and bring me to eternal life?
I Am your Saviour.
As we journey through these last few days of Lent, let the answers move us toward a fuller understanding of God’s omnipotence in our lives.
Guide us Lord to the inheritance you have promised. Amen.
