This morning while reading the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible New Testament, I came across the Seven “I am” Sayings of Jesus. After reading them, I felt compelled to write a short meditation for each one.
1. “I am the bread of life” John 6:35
Lord Jesus, may we share your bread with the hunger in spirit
2. “I am the light of the world” John 8:12
Lord Jesus, may our lives be beacons to those in the darkness
3. “I am the door of the sheep” John 10:7
Lord Jesus, may we walk through it when we expire
4. “I am the good shepherd” John 10:11
Lord Jesus, may we always be under your protection
5. “I am the resurrection and the life” John 11:25
Lord Jesus, may your victory over death be the foundation of our faith
6. “I am the way, and the truth, and the life” John 14:6
Lord Jesus, may our words, thoughts, and actions bind us to yours
7. “I am the true vine” John 15:1
Lord Jesus, may our branches never wither
