God of the living

In Mark 12:26-27, Jesus noted that while we may think that the dead are dead, He reminded us that God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

“I am the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” Note how this is present tense, not past. We may be dead by human terms, but we live on forever by God’s terms.

We all will be resurrected. I want to stand in God’s presence, and not His absence.
