The gospel of John records seven “I am” statements made by Jesus;
“I am the bread of life” (John 6:35)
“I am the light of the world.” (John 8:12)
“I am the door of the sheep.” (John 10:7)
“I am the good shepherd.” (John 10:11)
“I am the resurrection and the life.” (John 11:25)
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” (John 14:6)
“I am the true vine” (John 15:1)
About the most I can do in describing myself is to paraphrase a sentiment usually attributed to G.K.Chesterton in saying that;
I am what is wrong with the world.
I write a lot on here about what is wrong with the church, what is wrong with Christians, or how we could do this thing or that thing better. I probably won’t stop doing those types of posts, but I also need to rest in the knowledge that the life that I have the most influence over is my own.
The most comforting part of all of this is that because of the “I am” that is described throughout the gospel of John, and all of Scripture, there will not always be a something that is wrong with the world… and a day will come when even I can’t screw that up.
