Jesus is the I AM

“I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even born, I Am!” (John 8:58, NLT).

If you’re on Facebook, you know they made everyone switch to a format called timeline. I don’t like it, but I guess since human beings live on a timeline, the Facebook people thought it was appropriate. We have a starting point and an ending point, and everything in between is what makes a life.

When Jesus told the Jews he knew Abraham, they thought he was crazy. And then when he called himself “I AM” just as God had done in Moses’ day, they got mad. They could see he was a man the same as them and to put himself on the same level as God was just too much. But Jesus doesn’t have a timeline. He really did know Abraham. He wasn’t just a man—he was God and was with God (John 1). And he still is! He is the glorified man who returned to the Father, who is now with God and is still God. As the great I AM, he is the only one who can fix our timeline so it doesn’t have to end.

  1. Thanks Tammy! My older computer won’t access FaceBook, so I’m glad you make your comments available through email. Yes, God IS (!) and Jesus Christ and our Father are One (Jn.10:29-30). The amazing love of God flows out via His Spirit, even to us, so that WE may be One with God (Jn.17:20-26)! If we can listen and believe this wonderful revelation, we are friends of God (Jn.15:12-15)! What could be better than that?!

    PS. Thanks to Trish for her replies, very good!
