Communion: Jesus is all we need

When I first started reading the Bible, and in particular the NT, I really started to take note of the words in red letters. I came to learn that the words written in red were the words of Jesus. The words of Jesus fascinated me. And although I didnt understand them, I knew they were far greater than any words in any other book I had ever read before.

One of the sayings that really grabbed my attention was the red-letter words of Jesus that said, I am the. As a new believer, 28 years ago last Friday, I can remember highlighting them in my very first Bible and them being very special to me.

I found that Jesus used this term 7 times in John. And as I reflected on these words I realised that Jesus is all I needed.

1. Bread of Life - I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me shall not hunger. John 6:35

2. Light of the world - I am the light of the world; he who fallows Me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12

3. Gate - I am the gate; if anyone enters through Me, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. John 10:9

4. Good Shepherd - I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for His sheep. John 10:11
 
5. Resurrection and Life - I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me shall live even if he dies. John 11:25

6. Way, Truth, Life - I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me. John 14:6

7. True vine - I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. John 15:1

The divinity of Jesus Christ is further illustrated in John 8:58. Jesus said, Truly, Truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I am, which means that Jesus existed before His human life on earth.

For me these I am sayings represent everything we need in this life and beyond. I need bread and water that is both physical and spiritual. I need a Good Shepherd that will light the way and lead me on the right path to truth. I need to be connected to the true vine that will give me life both abundant life now and resurrection to eternal life. In short, I need Jesus. We all do. Jesus really is all we need.

Right now, I will give thanks and then the helpers forward.
