John’s gospel says about “the seven I Ams” of Jesus


“And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who
believes in Me shall never thirst.”

Only John’s gospel says about “the seven I Ams” of Jesus:

1 I am the bread of life (John 6: 35)
2 I am the light of the world. (John 8:12)
3 I am the door. (John 10:7,9)
4 I am the good Shepherd. (John 10:11)
5 I am the resurrection and the life. (John 11: 25)
6 I am the way, the truth, and the life. (John 14: 6)
7 I am the true vine. (John 15: 1,5)

⚡ In John 6, following the miraculous feeding of the five thousand, the disciples eagerly ask Jesus
“Lord, give us this bread always” (V:34) Jesus’ reply to them is the verse cited. How amazing that a relationship with Jesus can provide constant spiritual nourishment in our everyday lives!

⚡ He reminds His listeners that when their ancestors, wandered hungry in the wilderness, God provided
Manna (bread) and quail. (Exodus 16) That food satisfied for a time, but Jesus promises that those who accept Him as the “bread of life” will “live for ever.” (John 6: 48,51)

⚡ Is there a emptiness that you feel in the deepest parts of your heart, mind and soul? Are you longing for spiritual wholeness? Come to Jesus- He will make you whole!
