I am.

Re: Verse reading–John 14:1-14 (day six)
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life”–v 6.  There is no “I” in team.  It is, therefore, a heads-up to the uniqueness of Christ that He so often makes “I am” statements.  Christ is not on anyone else’s “team” (Except the Father’s).  He, without the aid of others, claims to be full and comprehensive sufficiency for those who come to Him.  He denies that they need anything/anyone else!  Consider a human analogy.  What if I said something similar to Holly?  “Sweetheart, I love you.  From this day forward, you do not need anyone else.  Not your sons. Not your family or friends. Not at any level.   You need never listen to another sermon.  I am it!  I am what you need.”  Would you think me crazy, arrogant or in danger?  Yes!  Yet, Christ makes this claim without pause or pride.  Why?  Because He truly is the all-sufficient Son of god.  Praise Him!
