The “I am” statements in the Gospel of John.


I firmly believe that God is expressed in many ways, and Jesus shows us several ways that we can express God. For one, to believe that we have God within us and only to tap is an amazing notion.  To look at the 7 “I am” statements in the Gospel of John, could Jesus be provoking us to make internal spiritual assessments:

With God in me,
I am sustenance for the world (6:35),
I am the beginning (10:7),
I am the path (14:6),
I am growth (15:1),
I am the guide (10:11),
I am the enlightened (8:12),
and I am reborn (11:25).

If you meditate on these, you may feel a profound connection to the divine that Jesus is our example. This becomes a deeply spiritual feeling that reveals all that we are inside and in our community.
Be the light where you go!
