Meditating on Jesus' I AM Statements

By: Sarah Geringer 

This Good Friday, I encourage you to meditate on Jesus' I AM statements in the book of John. 

By doing so, you can reflect on all he is to you, and what he freely gave so you can live forever with him.

Look them up in context within your own Bible. This will enhance your understanding of his I AM statements, and you'll gain greater insight.

Here are ten of these statements, pulled from the New Living Translation. Read them slowly and consider how they apply to your own life.

Then Jesus told her, “I am the Messiah!” 
John 4:26

Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty." 
John 6:35

Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” 
John 8:12

Jesus continued, “You are from below; I am from above. You belong to this world; I do not." 
John 8:23

Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, before Abraham was even born, I am!” 
John 8:58

But while I am here in the world, I am the light of the world.” 
John 9:5

Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved. They will come and go freely and will find good pastures. 
John 10:9

I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me." 
John 10:14

Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying." 
John 11:25

You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and you are right, because that’s what I am.
John 13:13

Let these scriptures inspire, uplift, comfort and encourage you this Holy Week and beyond.
Dear Jesus,
Thank you for being Lord of my life.
I learn so much by studying your names in the Bible.
Teach me today how to apply your declarations to my own life.
Thank you for dying on my behalf,
and for conquering death that I may live with you in heaven.
Help me share this good news about who you are with others.
