Jesus’ “I am” Statements

Open your Bibles to John chapter 8 and read verse 12.

Jewish rulers brought a woman to to Jesus to humiliate her as she was caught in sin. The people living for the Jewish law wanted to stone her and kill her, but not Jesus! Jesus didn’t push the woman away for her sin, but instead He loved her. The world and satan want to point out our every wrong when we follow Jesus, but Jesus Himself doesn’t condemn us and push us away. Jesus instead states His second “I am” statement as He brings lights to the darkness “I am the light of the world”

Discuss the following questions together as a family:

1. Why didn’t Jesus let the woman’s accusers throw stones are her?                                         

2. When we’re in sin, why should we run to Jesus?                                                                   

3. Share of a time that God redeemed and made something bad (dark) into something good (light) in your personal life.

Practical: Go around the table and share your testimony of what God has done in your life. Praise God for saving us sinners!
