Devotion 💙

There is no one like my Lord!

He is the foundation on which I stand
I will not be shaken!
The only Name worthy of praise
as long as I breathe.
He’ll never forsake me and His arms
are always open to embrace me

no matter how far I may stray.

He forgives
He heals
He guides

He carries burdens
He is the only shelter we need 
in the stormy weather
For there is no one like my LORD!

There is none beside You, open up my eyes in wonder and
Show me who You are and fill me with Your heart

Bible Activity/Discussion

The significance of “I Am”

Jesus once had a heated discussion with the Jews of His time because of His usage of “I am”. The Jews were upset and they took up stones to stone Him for making Himself equal with God. They thought He was blaspheming. 

If you go back to Exodus 3:13-14, when God spoke to Moses from the burning bush and told him to go to Egypt to free His people, Moses asked God what His name was, God, replied, “I AM THAT I AM.” 

“Before Abraham was, I am.” simply lets us know that Abraham was brought into being, but Jesus existed eternally.

Jesus used “I Am” in seven declarations of Himself:

1. I am the bread of life John 6:35. Jesus is our spiritual sustenance and He supports and maintains the life that He gives. 

2. I am the light of the world John 8:12. Through Him, we gain spiritual understanding and His judgments are true because of His relationship with the Father.

3. I am the door John 10:9. And because He is, we have unlimited access to His Kingdom.

4. I am the good Shepherd John 10:11. He paid our entrance fee with His life.

5. I am the resurrection and the life John 11:25. Our eternal life is guaranteed; Christ is able of Himself to raise men from death to life.

6. I am the way, the truth, and the life John 14:6. He is the ONLY MEANS through which men can approach the Father.

7. I am the true vine John 15:1. And we are the branches of this Vine. I want to explore more of this metaphor later on.

Perhaps if the Jews of Jesus’s days had ears to hear (His Word) and eyes to see (His miracles/signs), then they wouldn’t have missed the significance of “I AM”.
