Day 4: I Am…
In the Old Testament, when God first appeared to Moses, Moses asked God His name. In Exodus 3:14 we read, 14 God replied to Moses, “I Am Who I Am. Say this to the people of Israel: I Am has sent me to you.” While the name I AM has been discussed by Jewish and Christian scholars for centuries, the Gospels make it clear that Jesus speaks of Himself with the same name. Within the Gospel of John we read the following statements by Jesus:
I AM: John 6:20, 8:24, 8:28, 8:58, 18:5
I am the bread of life: John 6:35, 6:48, 6:51
I am the light of the world: John 8:12, 9:5
I am the door of the sheep: John 10:7, 10:9
I am the good shepherd: John 10:11, 10:14
I am the resurrection and the life: John 11:25
I am the way, the truth, and the life: John 14:6
I am the true vine: John 15:1
As you read today, consider this: Who is God? Who is God inviting you to be? How is God inviting you to respond to Him?
Who is God?
Who is God inviting you to be?
How is God inviting you to respond to Him?

Reflect: What did you H.E.A.R. from God today? HEAR Bible Study Method
Heavenly Father, admittedly, it’s impossible for me to fully wrap my mind around who You are. It’s impossible for me to fully grasp how big You are and how much You love and care for me. As a result, I’m sometimes tempted to not even try. I’m sometimes tempted to not meditate on who You are, and how much You love and care for me. But Father, I don’t want to give into these temptations. My desire is to know You as well as I possibly can. My desire is to see and know the wonders and majesty of who You are. My desire is to see and know myself as You do, and to see and know how I may live in the way You’ve called me to live. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
