The Cross In Our Bodies

This post is adapted from a sermon by Louie Giglio. It was sent in email form from a medical doctor who verified that all the facts about Laminins are correct. 

In his sermon, Louie Giglio, was talking about how inconceivably BIG our God is...How He spoke the universe into being... Etc.  He spoke of how this
universe-creating God ALSO knitted our human bodies together with amazing detail and wonder.
The God, Who created all this, also has the power to hold it all together when things seem to be falling apart...how our loving Creator is also our sustainer.


Giglio spoke about laminins...this is absolutely amazing!!

Here is how
Wikipedia describes them: 'Laminins are a family of proteins that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in almost every animal tissue' You see.... Laminins are what hold us together... LITERALLY. They are cell adhesion molecules. They are what holds one cell of our bodies to the next cell. Without them, we would literally fall apart. This is what the structure of laminin LOOK LIKE..
AND THIS IS NOT a 'Christian portrayal' of it....
If you look up laminin in any scientific/medical piece of literature, this is what you will see


Now tell me that our God is not the coolest!!!  Amazing.  The glue that holds us together.... ALL of us..... Is in the shape of the cross.  Immediately Colossians 1:17 comes to mind.
 "He is before all things, and in him All things HOLD TOGETHER."

Thousands of years before the world knew anything about laminin, St.Paul penned those words. And now we see that from a very LITERAL standpoint, we are held together...One cell to another.... By the cross.

You would never in a quadrillion years convince me that it is anything
other than the mark of a Creator Who knew EXACTLY what laminin 'glue' would look like!!
