It’s still time to remember.
Perhaps, during this momentous week in world politics, it’s even more fitting that we remember how precious were the lives of those men and women who died in warfare throughout humanity’s long history. When I wear the red poppy, it’s not just in remembrance of those who gave their lives in service to their country during the First World War, but it’s also a protest against the futility of war. More importantly, it’s a statement of hope – a certain hope that everyone who has died and who will die, be it in warfare or not, is not lost forever.
There is hope, not just because we remember, but above all because God remembers. That’s why he sent his Son, Jesus, to us. Jesus came to die that we might live beyond death because God remembers us.
No matter what turmoil the world is in, no matter how unsettled the political scene may seem, no matter what wars happen next, no matter how hopeless things appear, nothing can separate us from that hope which God gives to us in Christ Jesus.
There is hope because God remembers each and every one of us.
