Jesus’ Seven I AM Statements

Slide2
MentorLink International has recently partnered with Jesus.Net to produce a new video discipling series called “The I AM Series”.

Like Days with Jesus, this series uses a short video clip from a film based on the Gospel of John. In this series, we draw out Jesus’ seven I Am statements. In the weeks to come, we will post 1-2 video links as our weekly devotional thought.

Let us know what you think and how it impacts you. As in all we do in MentorLink, our heart is to draw people to Jesus to live, lead and influence people to be more like Him.

Take a few minutes to view the introduction to the “I AM Series” using this link and ponder the questions at the end of the video.

Boasting

megaphone-1468168_pixabayIt is human nature to boast. Some boasting is good but much of it is questionable or simply fleshly. Often behind boasting is the desire to build oneself up or seek approval from others.

Paul says this, “‘Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.’ For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends.” (2 Cor. 10:17-18)

Success is defined as one whom the Lord commends not what we or others think.

Take a moment to think through boasting that you might have done these past few days. Talk with the Father about this.

May you and I boast in the Lord.

The Nations

MLI_GlobeJesus came for people from every tribe, nation and peoples. Some of His last words to the Disciples reflect this heart and provided clear focus for their actions.

Jesus said, “… that repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.” (Luke 24:47)

Take a moment to ask Abba how He wants you to focus some of your actions toward peoples of the nations.

“To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power, so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (2 Thess. 1:11-12)

Take a moment to pray the above for some people the Lord brings to your mind.

Maranatha,
