The Present-Tense Christ

“I am the Son of God” John 10:36 KJV
“I am the resurrection and the life” John 11:25 KJV
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life” John 14:6 KJV

The present-tense Christ. He never says, “I was.”
We do because “we were.”
We were younger, faster, prettier.
Prone to be people of the past tense, we reminisce.
Not God. Unwavering in strength, he need never say, “I was.”

From the center of the storm, the unwavering Jesus shouts, “I am.”
Tall in the Trade tower wreckage.
Bold against the Galilean waves.
ICU, battlefield, boardroom, prison cell, or maternity ward—
whatever your storm. “I am.”

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever. Hebrews 13:8 KJV

Trust God for your day, Today
