Scripture: John 10:9
Welcome to week four in our series on the I AM statements of Jesus.
With more and more doubts and questions arising about this man who claims to be God, Jesus continues into what would be His last public address.
Sheep, a very common animal of the day, were noticeably limited in their intelligence and ability to stay the path. Jesus boldly states that we are like sheep, who have gone astray.
Because sheep are so susceptible to attack and wandering, most homes had a pen built and often had a hired gatekeeper to protect he one way in and out. Any other attempt to enter the pen without going through the gate Jesus calls “a thief and a robber”.
Jesus is not claiming to be the gatekeeper, but rather the gate. He is the door. He is the ultimate protector and provider for all the sheep. There is only one way to eternal life and His name is Jesus.
Series: Jesus is
This summer we are going to walk through 9 amazing “I am” statements and visuals given by Jesus. Each one helps us understand the fullness of what Jesus claimed about Himself and prompts us to answer, “Who do you say that Jesus is?”
