“Christ’s seven “I am” statements, recorded in John’s Gospel, give us a glimpse into God’s character and promises. Through them, we see that Christ grants a way when we find ourselves lost, fullness when emptiness threatens, light when the darkness closes in. And he does not hand these things out as if they are quantities that can be depleted. By no means! Jesus is the Way, the Light, the Life we crave. God designed every piece of you specifically and lovingly for his glory. He is—right now, in the present tense—everything: not just everything you need, but really, truly everything.
Jesus invites us to fix our identity on God alone, freeing us from fear, bitterness, busyness, and other toxins that steal our joy and limit our influence for the kingdom. It’s radical, earth shattering—and breathtakingly beautiful.
