This week has been a frustrating time for many of us who live in the British Isles. It has become clear that there is no consensus in the British Parliament about what the UK’s relationship with the EU will look like after the 29th of March 2019. It sometimes seems like the UK Government has no plan, and that our future is being carelessly left to the whims of politicians and whatever time will bring.
This same claim is sometimes brought against God. That there is no great plan of which humanity is a part and that what happens to us is solely time and chance.
The Bible tells a different story though. It tells us that God so loved the world, so loved you and me, that even before the universe was created God had chosen to give us his son, Jesus Christ. That God planned from the beginning to make his dwelling among us and that in Jesus Christ we have life and hope, no matter how dreary and dark the world seems.
That God’s love for us is so resolute and unchangeable that nothing can separate us from it, not even the mess we might make of Brexit, or of this planet or even of our lives.
Turn to Jesus, for in him is the hope of the world.
