As we look at the events of our world today, it’s tempting to become pessimistic about the future. On the surface, things don’t seem to be going all that well. Sometimes it seems all we hear is bad news. If we’re not careful, we can find ourselves questioning God and His plan.
In John’s Gospel today, we’re going to see a family in the midst of great loss and pain question the plan of God. Yet in the end, we see that Jesus brings life to even the most dire of circumstances. Even when we experience hardship and loss, God is working it all for our good and His glory.
