That is why I told you that you will die in your sins, for unless you believe that I AM, you’ll die in your sins. John 8:24 ISV
Many believe that Jesus was a righteous man and moral teacher. They believe that He is the son of God, created by God but He is not God. But from our text, you can see clearly that Jesus said “unless you believe that I AM, you’ll die in your sins”. “I AM” is an attribute given to God, in the greek it’s rendered “Ego Eimi”. In other words Jesus was saying, you have to believe that I am God. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Aleph and Tav.
Beloved, knowing and believing this will change our lives. God came down to die for us, He took our place and died the death that was meant for us. He took all our punishment, judgement and condemnation upon Himself. He cried out “it is finished”; all that was required has been fulfilled for us. We can now boldly and in liberty enter through the veil, His flesh, into the Holy place (Hebrew 10:15).
Saints, this should give you full assurance of the gift of “no more condemnation”. When you realise that the blood of Jesus was shed on the cross and cleansed you from ALL sins, you will be confident and live with a purged conscience, no longer fearing condemnation or guilt from the devil. God took your place; believe His love for you, beloved. Believe that Jesus, your saviour is the great “I AM”.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I believe that You are the great “I AM”. I receive and accept all the good things that Your sacrifice bought for me in Jesus Name.
