The Great “I Am”

The Love that is energizing the universe will carry us through this season of chaos.

John 8:51

“Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever keeps my word will never see death.”


When Jesus spoke these words, many believed that he was insane.

How could people evade death by keeping his word?

Jesus drew large crowds because his preaching must have been new and exciting.

He gave the oppressed people hope.

He said, “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28).”

He repeatedly told his listeners to not be afraid.

He brought them the news that God loved them unconditionally.

Just look at the Parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32).

Jesus also said that he came so that we might have abundant life (John 10:10).

The fact is, when you listen to Jesus’ teachings and live by them – you find your true self.

You discover the life you were meant to live.

All the trappings of this world cannot compare!

Even amid the storms of life such as what is happening now…you sense an inner calm.

And when you make love your objective in life…love has no end.

Physical death will be only a passageway.

It will simply be a transition to new and eternal life.

Awaken to the reality that you are part of the great “I Am.”
