One Thing Remains

Romans 8:38-39 Living Bible (TLB)                                                                                                                38 For I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels won’t, and all the powers of hell itself cannot keep God’s love away. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, 39 or where we are—high above the sky, or in the deepest ocean—nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when he died for us.

Yesterday’s devotional touched on the scientific principle of entropy.  The Bible contains examples of it, written hundreds of years before a physicist discovered it.  We learned that EVERYTHING in the universe eventually wears out with one and only one exception:  God.  Moreover, God is love!  

Almost eight years ago when undergoing cancer treatments in another city, my initial prognosis carried great uncertainty.  It’s quite uncomfortable to be seriously ill, being proactive to get well, yet have no idea how things would turn out.  

My confidence about the future changed dramatically upon attending Christ the Redeemer Church for the first time.  Its worship team performed One Thing Remains by Jesus Culture.  It turned me to mush as the applicability to my health situation proved incredible.  Even today it moves me deeply.  

What a powerful song with amazing lyrics!  It drives home the truth that God’s love is forever and will never leave us.  I encourage you to check it out.  Here it is, performed by Passion:
