The following is from a message series by Jay Bruner, pastor of Center Point Church.  I was only able to hear 3 messages in person, but gathered the basic notes from all of them  And pastor friends … this will preach!

IT’S JUST THAT SIMPLE

I AM …

IMMANUEL = Jesus Christ = God with us

WHO IS WITH US?

Jesus said … “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again.  Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. (John 6:35)

I am the PROVIDER of life.

Jesus said … “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” (John 8:12)

I am the PATHWAY for life.

Jesus said … “Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved.  They will come and go freely and will find good pastures.” (John 10:9)

I am the PROTECTOR of life.

Jesus said … “I am the good shepherd.  The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep. (John 10:11)

I am the PURCHASER and the POSSESSOR of life.

Jesus said … “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. (John 11:25)

I am the POWER of and over LIFE and DEATH.

Jesus said … “I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one can come to the Father except through me. (John 14:6)

I am the PATHWAY to God.

Jesus said … “I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener … “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches.  Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:1, 5)

I am the PRODUCER of a life of meaning.
