First Kernel of Corn - God Loves Us
As we continue to give thanks to God, let us remember the first kernel of corn that the Pilgrims used to hold on to their faith during their hardships.
The first kernel reminds us that God loves us.
I had an opportunity to ask an astronomer a question that drew a very astounded look. I asked him, “How big is the universe?” After he cleared his throat a few times, he began to explain that there is no real way to determine its size. If we just look at the observable universe, it would be 93 billion light years from edge to edge. That means it would take light 93 billion years traveling at 186,000 miles per second to go from one side to the other.
God’s love for us knows no boundary or obstacles. It is always there and nothing can separate us from His Love. Paul, in Romans 8, reminds us of this.And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 (NLT)
