'All that I am, I am for you'

"God’s ‘I am’ had enormous relevance for Israel. It has no less relevance for us as Christians. For the point God made in the burning bush He made mare clearly than even in the ministry of Jesus. In the one He said to an ancient people,‘All that I am, I am for you’; in Jesus God said it again, not in a bush that burned, but in a man who came and spoke and died. In the bush it is a momentous message to Moses and to Israel; in Jesus of Nazareth it is a definite statement to the human race."
