Amen, Amen, I Say to You... - Daily Devotion

Jesus answered, “Amen, amen, I say to you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit. – John 3:5

Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham came to be, I AM.” John 8:58

Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit. John 12:24

Usually, people say Amen at the end of a prayer. But Jesus used this Hebrew word at the beginning of a statement, which was unique. The basic meaning is I solemnly tell you the truth.

That phrase in the Gospels is the spiritual equivalent of pay attention this is important. In school, this is the part you would write down because it was definitely going to be on the test.

In all three of the above verses’ out of John’s gospel, Jesus uses the phrase “Amen, amen I say to you” in order to emphasize the trustworthiness of his teaching, His authority founded on God’s truth.

Amen, amen, I say to you…God is Love!
