The Great “I AM’—Cradled in a Manger

Adrian Rogers

“She brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger…” – Luke 2:7

“This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am well-pleased.” – Matthew 3:17
“This is My beloved Son…hear ye Him.” – Matthew 17:5

Jesus never had an identity crisis. He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” Note Jesus didn’t say, “I am one way to God.” He didn’t say, “I am a life.” Jesus said, “I am the way, I am the life.” AndGod says, “He is my dear Son.”

In the Gospel of John, Jesus said, “Before Abraham was, I am.”  Not “I was,” but “I am.”  He is the great I AM.  He never had a beginning.  He has always existed. He didn’t have His beginning at Bethlehem.

 “For by Him [Jesus] were all things created, that are in Heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him; And He is before all things, and by Him all things  consist. – Colossians 1:16-17

The One who created the universe not only has this whole world in His hands, but He has the past, the present, and the future in His hands.
