The Call to “I AM”

Lent is the season to remember one essential thing about being a Christian: when Jesus goes to the cross, there goes God. The “I AM” statements in the Gospel of John reveal, in all fullness, Jesus’ identity. “I AM” is the name of God – as God revealed to Moses by the burning bush. In John’s gospel, we are reminded that to believe in Jesus is to hold together the fullness of Jesus’ humanity and divinity.

Each time Jesus says, “I AM,” the whole statement reveals who Jesus is for us: bread, resurrection, light, God. We cannot separate God from the Word made flesh, the divinity from the human Jesus.

This Lenten series helps us imagine that what Jesus puts after “I AM” also shapes our reality. As it’s been said, “I AM.” Two of the most powerful words: What you put after them shapes your reality.
