“Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!”
What a mystery! Before Abraham took his first breath, You existed, O Christ. Even at dawn of creation, You were there. Before time came into being, You were – You are! Who else can claim such a thing, except God in the flesh? Who else can truly bear the name “I AM,” the very name of God? Who else cradles the vast expanse of history in his hands? Yet into that history You have become the transcendent imminent, the Creator becoming part of the creation, the eternal Word of God made flesh. All praise be to You, Jesus Christ, my Living Lord and my eternal God!
