    "I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!"
    -- John 8:58 (NIV)


    JESUS, the infinite I AM,
    With God essentially the same,
    With him enthroned above all height,
    As God of God, and Light of Light,
    Thou art by thy great Father known,
    From all eternity his Son.

    Thou only dost the Father know,
    And wilt to all thy followers show,
    Who cannot doubt thy gracious will
    His glorious Godhead to reveal;
    Reveal him now, if thou art he,
    And live, eternal Life, in me.
        ... Charles Wesley (1707-1788)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, my belief is so weak compared to the truth of Your revelation.
