I AM

"I AM"
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
So Jesus said to the Pharisees: "When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will realize that I AM, and that I do nothing on my own, but I say only what the Father taught Me" (JN 8:28). Today Jesus tells us that when He is "lifted up" they will realize that He is "I AM." Being lifted in the Gospel of John identifies both Jesus death on the cross and His resurrection. In other words, it is in Jesus' dying and rising that we know the full intent of God's dynamic love. That divine love brings Him body, soul, and spirit through death into risen life. One with the great I AM, the risen Christ Jesus lives at the heart of the universe, and reaches out to all which transforms each of us by the power of that divine love.
 
Both of Pope Emeritus Benedict's encyclicals are about divine love. First, God is love, and the second, Saved in hope. Instead a focus on the negative, the focus is on the loving side of our heavenly Father. Saved in hope, true Christian hope, like every aspect of our Christian life, is something deeply shared with other believers through our Communion in Christ Jesus. "We cannot achieve it alone or from our own resources alone."
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: I recommend that you take the time to read these encyclicals from our Pope Emeritus, they will give you a real boost in faith. O Lord, hear my prayer, and let my cry come to you (Ps 102). You are the Great "I AM."
