“I Am the Resurrection and the Life”

What does it mean to us that Jesus is the resurrection and the life? We do not need to fear death for we know that it is not the end but rather the beginning of eternity. Life is full of unfulfilled dreams and unmet expectations. There are disappointments and struggles. Flaws and failings in us and others. This life will never be enough. When Jesus says that He is the resurrection and the life it gives us hope for the future. All in this life will die, it will all come to an end, but there is new life in Jesus. What was dead will be reborn. In Him death becomes new life and the life lived in Christ will always be enough!

“I Am the Bread of Life”

Don’t focus your life and your efforts on food that spoils. Focus your life and your efforts on the food that will enable you to live forever. Today as you think of your own life, what do you focus your life on? What needs do you spend most of your time trying to satisfy? Jesus isn’t saying don’t have a good career, a nice house, leisure activities, or money in the bank. But He is saying, “Don’t labour for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life. I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry.”

“I Am the Good Shepherd”

Jesus states that He is the Good Shepherd and then gives the definition of the Good Shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. Jesus has nothing left to prove in regards to being The Good Shepherd. He already has. Jesus claims in this text that he would wilfully lay down His life for the sheep – He did it. Sin was the greatest threat to Jesus’s sheep and He took that sin upon himself and experienced the most incredible pain and shame through his crucifixion.

“I Am the Gate”

Jesus is the gate by which we enter the flock of God. Jesus is the ONLY gate by which we enter into the flock of God. Those who enter through Jesus find life, which means we all begin on the outside and need to enter through Him. We are all sheep in need of a shepherd. At the end of the day, the most remarkable thing is that there is a gate. Jesus is the gate through which we can enter into God’s flock. The most remarkable thing about Jesus’ statement: “I am the gate” is that there is a gate! So that we can enter into the Kingdom of God and we can be part of flock with the One Shepherd, Jesus!

“I AM the Light of the World”

Jesus is the light of the world. The head of His body, the Church, through which He intends to fill every place with His presence. We are here to be light, bringing out the God-colours in this world. God is not a secret to be kept. Can you imagine every city, every neighbourhood, every street, and every house saturated with the presence of Jesus as His people let their light shine?

Do the Word!

An active faith comes by doing what we hear God telling us to do, a passive faith invades our day to day life when we allow what God is telling us to remain in our heads and not allowing it to penetrate our hearts will naturally lead to action. The book of James is very practical. If you would like to learn to be more active in your faith the book of James is the place to go. There is a large emphasis on doing. Not doing so that we will be saved, but doing which is a natural result of being saved.

Giving Your Baggage to Jesus

It’s so easy to become overwhelmed by what we pack into our lives. As we race through life we fill our time, occupy our thoughts and waste our energy with all sorts of things that aren’t necessarily sinful, but they’re by no means good either, instead they’re weighing and slowing us down. We need to unpack and give these things to Jesus, because they’re preventing us from being all that God created us to be.

Thirsty

How is the Holy Spirit like water?
Water quenches your thirst. It is found in all of life and is essential for life. Water cleanses. Likewise, the Holy Spirit quenches the thirst of our soul. Our spirit is dead without the life-giving water of the Spirit. His presence cleanses us. He fills us up, satisfying us and overflowing us to bless others. We become a wellspring of water so that others may come and drink.

Walk by Faith

When we face the storms of life they almost always appear more powerful to us than God’s Word. The sobering reality, however, is that we have to remind ourselves that our perceptions can be deceptive. So often, things are not as they appear to be in the natural. We need to walk by faith and not by sight.
