He asked it! It was a startling question for a preacher to make to our sophisticated and technologically advanced congregation. I admired his courage and wondered if he would be marginalized for being "out of touch" with the 21st century. He asked something like this: "We are connected to our iPhones, iPads, iTouch, iTunes, iMac, iChat, but have we lost the connection to the I AM?"

God says:

"I am your shield, your exceeding great reward" (Genesis 15:1).
"I am Almighty God, walk before me and be blameless" (Genesis 17:1).
"I am the God of your father Abraham … for I am with you" (Genesis 26:24).
"I am the Lord, that is My name" (Isaiah 42:8).
"For I am God and there is no other, I am God and there is none like Me" (Isaiah 46:9).
"I am who I AM, thus you say to the children of Israel, I AM has sent me to you (Exodus 3:14).
"I am with you" (Jeremiah 1:14).
"I am merciful" (Jeremiah 3:12).

Jesus says:

"I am the living bread which came down from Heaven" (John 6:51).

"I am from Him and He sent me" (John 7:29).
"I am the light of the world." (John 8:12).
"I am the door" (John 10:9).
"I am the good shepherd" (John 10:11).
"I am the resurrection and the life" (John 11:25).
"I am the way, the truth, and the life" (John 14:60.
"I am the vine, you are the branches" (John 15:5).
"I am Jesus ..." (Acts 9:5).

So the question awaits your answer. Are you more connected to your idevice or the I AM?
