You’ve heard of the set of “I Am” statements Jesus made in the book of John. The other day I saw a new perspective or two on these:
1. Each of these implies a two-way relationship. What then is my corresponding role in each metaphor? See the chart below. (I’ve taken the liberty of adding a few other metaphorical titles of Christ which imply a corresponding role on our part. You will probably think of others…)
2. Each of these is exclusive—I am THE…(not “a…”) Jesus is the only one who can truly claim to be these things and fill these needs in my life.
