All you ever wanted

People Want                                                  Jesus says, “I AM…”

Satisfaction of our physical & soul hunger     The Bread of Life

Freedom from sin’s grip, light for our way     The Gate for the sheep

Unending life with an ageless body               The Resurrection and the Life

Access to God, true knowledge                    The Way to God, the Truth & the Life

Vitality & productiveness                             The True Vine

Salvation, a full & satisfying life                    The Good Shepherd—at the cost of his own                                                                                                             life!

What more could we want?  He has shown Himself to be beautiful, sufficient, loving, wise, and powerful—and that’s just the beginning.  Why not follow Him?

You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all

Seeking You as a precious jewel
Lord, to give up I’d be a fool
You are my all in all

Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame
Rising again I bless Your name
You are my all in all

When I fall down You pick me up
When I am dry You fill my cup
You are my all in all

Here are two beautiful Youtube renditions of this song:

Jesus Is–and I Am

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.

Jesus Is and I am
