Daily Service: Jesus is the I Am

Tenth in the series “Jesus is”  – I will include scriptures, references, graphics, and songs also.

Let there be no further doubt in your mind seeded by man-made doctrine. Jesus said I AM. He also says He is THE Way.

John 8:58 NKJV Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”[1]

8:58. Jesus then affirmed His superiority over the prophets and Abraham. Abraham came into being; but when he was born, Jesus was already existing. I Am is a title of Deity (cf. Ex. 3:14; Isa. 41:4; 43:11–13; John 8:28); the Jews’ response (v. 59) showed they understood it that way. Jesus, because of His equality with God (5:18; 20:28; Phil. 2:6; Col. 2:9), existed for all eternity (John 1:1).[2]

John 14:6 NKJV Jesus said to him, “I am THE way, THE truth, and THE life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.[3]

Jesus’ words, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life, are the sixth of Jesus’ seven “I am” statements in the Gospel of John (6:48; 8:12; 10:9, 11; 11:25; 14:6; 15:1). Jesus is the “Way” because He is the “Truth” and the “Life.” As the Father is Truth and Life, Jesus is the embodiment of God so people can come to the Father (cf. 1:4, 14, 18; 11:25). By His words, No one comes to the Father except through Me, Jesus stressed that salvation, contrary to what many people think, is not obtainable in many ways. Only one Way exists (cf. Acts 4:12; 1 Tim. 2:5). Jesus is the only access to the Father because He is the only One from the Father (cf. John 1:1–2, 51; 3:13).[4]

There are no multiple paths to God, only Jesus is the name by which we are saved.
