I AM

What’s in a name? Expectant parents spend hours laboring over a name for their child. They may research the meaning and background of names as well as who has shared the name. A name is important in that it may point to one’s character or personality.

When Moses asked God His name, God replied, “This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you’” (Exodus 3:14).

I AM echoes with supreme authority, absolute power, and unequivocal truth. I AM is eternal and immeasurable, beyond our ability to comprehend.

I AM breaks the barriers of time. It portrays God as present in every millennia. I AM is always in the state of ‘being.’ God always was, is, and will be.

After Jesus was arrested, the high priest questioned Him. “‘Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?’ ‘I am,’ said Jesus. ‘And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven’” (Mark 14:61-62).

Not only was Jesus the Son of God, He was claiming to be God Himself, God in flesh. He proved His claim by fulfilling every prophecy recorded in Scripture, many having been spoken hundreds of years in advance. Jesus demonstrated He was God by the miracles, signs, and wonders He performed and by defeating death by His ultimate resurrection.

I pray that when you face the great I AM and if He asks you if you are a believer in His Son, that you will be able to honestly and joyously reply, “I am.”
