The                                 Cross in Our Bodies
This                                 is a pretty neat story and an interesting thing                                 that few of us know.                                 
It                                  's                                 brief, so please read.                                 (FROM                                 A DOCTOR) 
A                                 couple of days ago I was running (I use that                                 term very loosely) on my treadmill, watching a                                 DVD sermon by Louie Giglio... And I was BLOWN                                 AWAY!  I want to share what I    &nbs

He                                 (Louie) was talking about how inconceivably BIG                                 our God is... How He spoke the universe into                                 being.. How He breathes stars out of His mouth                                 that are huge raging balls of fire..  Etc.                                 Etc. Then He went on to speak of how this                                 star-breathing, universe creating God ALSO                                 knitted our human bodies together with                                 amazing detail and wonder. At this point I am                                 LOVING it (fascinating from a medical                                 standpoint, you know.) .. And I was remembering                                 how I was constantly amazed during medical                                 school as I learned more and more about God's                                 handiwork. I remember so many times                                 thinking..'How can ANYONE deny that a Creator                                 did all of this???'                                
How                                 our loving Creator is also our sustainer.                                  Louie                                 went on to talk about how we can trust that the                                 God who created all this, also has the power to                                 hold it all together when things seem to be

And                               then I lost my breath. And it wasn't because I was                               running my treadmill,                               either!!! 
It                               was because he started talking about laminin. I                               knew about laminin.. 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.                               And I knew all this already. But what I didn't                               know is what they LOOKED                               LIKE.. 
But                               now I do.  And I have thought about it a               &nbs

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 1:15-17 comes to                               mind.  He is the image of the invisible God,                               the firstborn over all                               creation.                                 All things                               were created by him and for him.  He is                               before all things, and in him All things HOLD                               TOGETHER.'                                                                       Colossians 1:15-17                              
Call                               me crazy. I just think that is very, very, very                               cool. Thousands of years before the world knew                               anything about laminin, 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.
