The problem of the blind man, Lazarus and the great I AM!
Jesus said a lot of things about Himself. He says I am the Bread of life, I am the light of the world, before Abraham was –I AM, I am the Resurrection and the Life and finally - I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. While all of these statements have powerful meanings, the statements of ‘before Abraham was – I AM’ and about being ‘the Resurrection and the Life’ were the most confronting. The problem was that the guy who was born blind and could now see and Lazarus who was dead and is now alive confirmed the statements. No-one could deny the statements because of the evidence. Jesus was indeed who He said He was. The events surrounding these two men caused challenges too much for some to bear. The same is true today for many people. What do you make of the great “I AM”?

What is the role of the church anyway?
Many people have many opinions about the church with regards to its role and function. Should it just teach the bible? Or should its primary function be to witness about Jesus in the community. Or perhaps it should be involved in social welfare more. Should it ever be involved in politics or should it just stick to its core identity and be a religious/faith based organisation. Does the size of the church change its role or function? We open the bible and ask these things next Sunday night with a Q and A time following as we consider – What is the role of the church anyway? 6pm Sunday night.
