I am the good shepherd
Like a good shepherd, Jesus guides, protects and provides for his people - not because he has to - but because he loves them. And his love that means he is willing to put himself in harm's way, to rescue those he loves.
I am the way
Jesus didn't come to just show the way to God, he came to be the way to God. When he died on the cross, he died in our place, so that all our guilt could be removed completely - so that we need no longer be separated from God. No-one and nothing else can bridge that gap - not our good works, not our beliefs, not our religious practices - only Jesus.
I am the truth
Jesus came to show the truth about God. In our world, there are so many ideas about God - mostly these gods either approve of what we do (and we ignore them) or they disapprove of what we do (and we fear or hate them). But Jesus came to show us the God who loves us too much to leave us as we are.
I am the life
We all want security, love, and joy and we try to find these in many different places. But Jesus brings a greater security - that can never be lost, a greater love - that doesn't depend on our performance, and a greater joy - that still exists even in the middle of suffering. When we find him, we truly find life.
This is for everyone
Whoever you are, whatever you've done (whether good or bad), no matter what your social status, race or gender. No-one is good enough to deserve Jesus love, and yet no-one who turns to him will be refused and turned away.
This is surrender
We come to Jesus as we are, but we cannot come on our own terms. The cost is the same for everyone - to follow Jesus will cost everything. We choose to surrender all to him.
This is treasure
The cost might be high but life in Jesus is worth far more than we could ever give up. If you want an easy life then this probably isn't for you - there are plenty of easier paths to follow. But if you want a treasure worth more than life itself then come and find out more...
