Do You Follow a “Was” or an “Is”?
“I am He that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore.” Revelation 1:18
I went to see Lenin’s tomb when I was in Moscow. He is sealed in a crystal case. You can see his waxen face and his trimmed beard, and on that tomb these words are written: “He was the greatest leader of all peoples of all countries of all times. He was the lord of the new humanity. He was the savior of the world.”
Do you notice it’s all past tense? He was. Jesus is alive. He is the great “I AM.” It is an encounter with the living Christ that makes the difference in our lives. We serve a Savior who is alive and listening to our every prayer. He is bottling every tear and rejoicing with every victory.
Thank God for His plan of love that sent His Son to die for you. Praise Him that Jesus lives forevermore!
