God replied to Moses, "I Am Who I Am" Say this to the people of Israel:Yahweh, the God of your ancestors-the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob has sent me to you. This is my eternal name, my name to remember for all generations. Exodus 3:11-14 NLT
Almost four thousand years ago, Moses, in His very presence asked God who He was and got a peculiar answer. God said, "Say this to the people of Israel: I Am has sent me to you . . . . This is my eternal name" (Exodus 3:24-15).
From way back in my childhood, I have wondered why God would call Himself by such a name, but I have since grown to learn its significance. In my grammar classes in elementary school I learned that a sentence needs only two things to enhance its completeness: a subject and a verb. So when God says His name is "I Am," it conveys the concept that He is complete in Himself. He is indeed both subject and verb. He is everything we could possibly need.
Jesus put flesh on God's bare-boned answer to Moses' question about God's identity. Jesus left the comfort and sanctity of Heaven to show what it means to bear His Father's name. He, in confidence told His disciples, "I am the way, the truth and the life" (John 14:6). He also said, "I am the bread of life" (), "the light of the world" ( ), "the good shepherd" ( ), and "the resurrection and the life" ( ). In Revelation, Jesus declared, "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End" ( ). And He said, "Before Abraham was ever born, I Am" (John ).
If you're questioning who God is, just take some time to get to know Jesus in the pages of His Word. He is undoubtedly, the image of the invisible God. ---Colossians
