Jesus is greater than anyone or anything else. As the I AM, He claims superiority and supremacy over all things. Jesus gives us everything we need for this life and for eternal life. As Paul said, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 1:3). When you trust and treasure Jesus with all of your life, watch and see how the I AM changes who you are!
