Good morning friend, here is today's prayer...

Dear Father in Heaven,

You sent your only Son, Jesus, the great I AM. 

Jesus is without beginning, and without end.

JESUS, YOU ARE MY LORD. 

I bow before You.

You are the Lord God of glory.

I worship You the great I AM.

Thank you for Your selfless, merciful and loving gift of salvation.

In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Reflecting on the Names and Nature of God

Jesus: I Am

Now when He said to them, "I am He," they drew back and fell to the ground. John 18:6

Jesus is the I AM, the eternal all-powerful LORD. Moses asked the Lord what His name was. The Lord answered, “I AM WHO I AM…Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you'” (Exodus 3:14). The name "Lord" comes from the Hebrew verb that means “to be”; it is first person, repeated twice. When you say "Lord," you are saying, "I AM I AM." God exists in Himself and by Himself.

Lord Jesus, You are the great I AM; You are without beginning, and without end. You exist by Yourself and of Yourself. You are the Lord.

Jesus used metaphors to tell people what He was like. Jesus said "I AM the Bread," "the Light," "the Door," "the Good Shepherd," "the Resurrection," "the True Vine" and more. But when Jesus used the metaphors, He was saying more than that He was Bread that satisfied or the Way to Heaven.  Jesus was telling His listeners that He was the LORD who was revealed in the Old Testament. When the soldiers came to arrest Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus asked them, "Whom are you seeking?" (John 18:4). They answered, "Jesus of Nazareth” (John 18:5). When Jesus replied in return, "I am He" (John 18:6), He pulled aside His humanity, and His glorious deity came bursting out. The soldiers fell backward to the ground in response. How will you respond to His awesome glory?

Lord Jesus, I bow myself to the ground. You are the Lord God of glory. I worship You the great I AM. Amen.

Go Deeper: Exodus 3:1-15

Jesus is the great I AM of the Old Testament. 

Tomorrow...Jesus: God With Us (Immanuel)

       isn't this an eye-opener?
