- The present-tense Christ. He never says, “I was.”
We do. 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.”
