Jesus’ “I am” Statements

Open your Bibles to John chapter 11 and read verse 25.

Jesus is so powerful, He not only is raised Himself from the dead but He also raises another man from the dead, Lazarus. Jesus makes this fifth “I am” statement right before He raises Lazarus from the dead. Jesus always backs His Words up with action: “I am the resurrection and the life.”

Discuss the following questions together as a family:

1. What do you do when you are struggling to trust God and what He has already promised?                                            

2. Why is it so hard to trust God and His timing?                                                                             

3. Share about a time that you were so stuck on your situation, that you forgot to trust Jesus.

Practical: Sometime this week, together as a family, read the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead:     John 11:38-44
