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
