If there was a difficult question from the religious leaders, Jesus was there to answer it, but Jesus has told his disciples he was going away. They were troubled about this.
We have a hope now and for eternity because.
1. The work of God and prayer
2. Love and obedience
3. The Holy Spirit
God’s purposes don’t stop just because we think they have stopped, or because our nation is in a mess. God’s work continues. Wonder of wonders, God could do his work without us. He did not need humans when He said ‘Let there be light’, or when he created the heavens and the earth, and yet He uses us for his purposes.
We don’t need to worry because God has the big picture under his control, but He still wants us to participate in our own little corner of the world.
He will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee.
