I Am

By Published On: November 21, 20130 Comments on I Am

I am,
said God to Moses from the burning bush.

I am the light of the world…
I am the way…
I am the gate…
I am the vine…
I am the bread…
Before Abraham was, I am…

said Jesus.

And when the light went dim,
When the way was run,
And the gate was left open,
And the vine was wilted,
And the bread was eaten,
what remained of him was:
I am.

I am a body.
I am a personality, defining a name.
I am a member of a tribe, a faith, a family, a profession.
I am all these identities and more.
But when all my identities pass away,
what will remain of me will be:
I am.
