JOIN US FOR OUR EASTER SERMON SERIES: I AM
EVERY SUNDAY | MARCH 27TH - MAY 1ST
We become what we behold. A truly beautiful vision should transform us, and the Gospel of John has such a vision. It paints for us a profound picture of Jesus Christ—His character, His motives, His interactions—as He echoes God in the Old Testament through seven “I Am” claims. In gazing upon these bold and glorious claims, may we see and savor the Living God. May we marvel at and be blown away by the beauty and majesty of Christ so that He might become the ultimate object of our desires and affections, leading to our transformation and sanctification.
As we read through the book of John, we encounter seven different conversations in which Jesus makes very specific, far reaching, outrageous statements about Himself. Jesus does not just claim to know these things, or explain these things. He blatantly claims that He is these things. If true, the implications, and impact are tremendous. The implications reach deep into our real, daily lives. The impact involves life-changing transformation with everlasting consequence.
