I AM WHO I AM
“I AM WHO I AM.” These simple words have been an enigma to man for centuries. He has reasoned that there must be a great mystical significance in them, and has meditated at length in hope that the enigma might be resolved. At the risk of oversimplification let us alter the tempo, the emphasis we put on the words. In doing so, they may well give depth of insight to us. “I AM WHO I AM.” Perhaps the infinite wisdom of our one transcendent God is saying to us that the “I AM” in you has arrived at some degree of self-awareness. Could it be that He is saying, ”I Am not something apart; I am that something in you that has perceived of identity”?
The Lord has spoken to us, and He has proclaimed, that He is, the, “I AM!” He said, “I am the Lord; I have called you in righteousness (Isaiah 42:6a ESV)
I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. (John 10:9ESV)
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6ESV)
“I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live.” (John 11:25c,d ESV)
“I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. (John 6:35 ESV).
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. He who is a hired hand and not a shepherd, who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees, and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. He flees because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. (John 10:11-13 ESV)
I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. (John 10:14 ESV).
