We’re taking a deeeeep dive into this rather provocative question: Who did Jesus say he is?
We started with these three answers: Son of Man, Son of God and Messiah.
Now we’re in the midst of eight “I am” statements Jesus made that further define who he is. The first four: the Bread of Life, the Light of the World, the Gate and the Good Shepherd.
Today’s “I am” is embedded in a story about a man named Lazarus.
She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”
“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
Are you more Martha or Mary?
