I AMs…The Door, The Gate

Jesus says He is the door to His sheep.  He is also the gate, the way to salvation.  He is the gateway between this world and heaven, between this life and eternal life, between us and the Father. Continue reading “I AMs…The Door, The Gate”

I AM’s…The Light of the World

Jesus is the Light.  He came to this earth as a light in a world of darkness.  Our world is getting darker and Satan is at work trying to subdue the light while he still has time.  But, the good news is Jesus is coming and his light cannot be subdued!  Until then, we must be the light, reflecting the light of Jesus in the world around us.

I AM’s…The Bread of Life

I thought it would be fun and interesting to go through the “I AM’s” in John that Jesus proclaims.  Saying “I AM” was kind of taboo in the Jewish society  because they did not want to utter God’s name Yahweh that he proclaims to Moses for the people, which means “I AM.”  When Jesus said to the people, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM,” they were angry and offended because they did not believe that He was God (John 8:58).  But He is and has shown through the miracles and His death and resurrection.  He lives today in each of us that believe and trust in Jesus Christ.  Today we will start with the first “I AM,” The Bread of Life.

Only Jesus

Who or what do we worship?  Is there more than one way to get to heaven or to be with God?  Can we have access directly with God or must we go through someone or something else or do certain things?  There is no other way accept through Jesus.  He is the only way.  He is all we need to receive salvation.  God’s Word is clear on this.  It is my prayer that all of my friend, family and readers understand this.  I pray that God gives me the understanding as I read (and write).  I find that it is such a joy to learn about Him and I hope you will too.
