Jesus’ words:  “Before Abraham was, I am.” (Jn.8:58)  In Jesus declaring this fact, we see him as the one with God from all eternity.  Christ is the one promised to Abraham; that through him, God was going to bless the whole world. In the fulness of God’s time, ”He sent forth his son, made of a woman...that he might redeem those under the judgment of the law that we might be children of God.(Gal.4:4)   All who believe are set free from the guilt and power of sin.

Jesus was “declared to be the Son of God with the resurrection from the dead.” (Ro.1:4 NKJV)  His bodily resurrection from the dead confirmed the fact he is God’s Son.

   “...when this (Jesus) had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, and since that time he waits for his enemies  to be made his footstool.” (Heb.10:12-13 NIV)  In God’s time, Jesus will return to rule as king over all creation forever. Every enemy will be defeated.

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father (God) except through me.”  “I am the resurrection and of the life.” (Jn.14:6,11:25-6) Because Jesus lives we will live also. All the promises of God are centered in the person of Jesus Christ. Nothing can hinder God’s word about Christ.  He has spoken and it will all come into reality in God’s time.

Jesus’ call to come and follow him is to bring all who will believe into this plan.  What a wonder that God, in his mercy, includes us.  As we believe and choose to follow Christ, we will see his plan fulfilled in us; that plan will unfold throughout all eternity.(Eph.2:7,10)
