Jesus is the I AM (John 8:31-59)
“I tell you the truth, before Abraham was born, I am!”
WHAT YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO DO?
“If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.”
Jesus is calling you to a deeper and more determined faith.
To “hold” to Jesus’ teaching means…
The pre-eminence of Jesus’ Word.
The perseverance in Jesus’ Word.
WHAT ENABLES YOU TO DO IT?
Jesus’ claim about Himself
I can set you free (John 8:32)
I can keep you from death (John 8:51)
“Abraham rejoiced at seeing my Day”
“Before Abraham was born, I am”
Jewish leaders claim about Jesus
“You are demon-possessed”
The higher your view of Jesus as your God and King, the greater your ability to have a deeper more determined faith in Him.
