The promise of resurrection and life is not lodged in some distant event but is available already in the person of Jesus. So, too, the promises of God for us are not only about life eternal with God when we die or even about God’s forgiveness on the last day. Rather, the Gospel makes a tangible difference now, makes things possible now, opens opportunities and options now, and transforms relationships now. The promises of God are present tense, not just the future.
