In Moses’ encounter with God at the burning bush, we get the greatest
revelation into the here-and -now life. It is the name of God given to Moses: I
AM (Exodus 3:14). While likely referring to the aspect of God’s being (rather
than to a particular activity), the name is also one that encompasses place
(here) and time (now).
Obviously, God is present in quality and quantity beyond anything we can
imagine or replicate. But we are made in the image of God, and there is a
creational congruence between who God is and who we are made to be. And from
God’s nature, we learn two important things about ours.
First, our greatest gift is our being–our “I am” offerings of ourselves to
others. Of course, we cannot separate being and doing, and we must always do
what we can for others. But none of us lives very long without realizing there
are times when what we have is sorely inadequate. But with an “i am” identity,
we understand there is never a time when we have nothing to give. In every
moment we can give ourselves. We can be “present” to others here-and-now.
Second, an “i am” identity helps us to see the sufficiency and sacredness of
the present moment. We do not need to live anywhere else or anytime else. Life
is here-and-now. This second recognition enables us to fully invest ourselves
in what is before us, just as God does.
An “i am” identity gives us the eyes to see and ears to hear what’s going on
here-and-now, respond to it, and act accordingly. The “I AM” God sees and hears
the cries of the slaves in Egypt and comes down to deliver them. With our “i
am” identity we go and do likewise. Caring, compassion, and generosity are born
and expressed by “i am” people–people alive in the present moment, in the
O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You;My soul thirsts for You,My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty landWhere there is no water. -Psalm 63-1
Seek the Lord and His strength;Seek His face evermore!Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgements of His mouth. -1 Chronicles 16:11-12
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead,you will be saved. -Romans 10:9
God's love is amazing! It is real! It is personal. God's love is powerful, and the best news of all? His love never ends, no matter what! Your God wants to bless you with his love now and forever. -CTA
Live Simply - Love Generously - Care Deeply - Speak Kindly - Leave the rest to God!
