Laminin

This picture isn't some dorky Christian manipulation of biology. Look up Laminin in ANY legitimate scientific textbook and you will see this:

This cross shaped protein literally holds our bodies together!! How cool is God's handiwork?! Laminin is the glue that keeps our bodies together. Wikipedia says, "Laminins are a family of proteins that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding of basement brains in almost every animal tissue". We would literally fall apart if we did not have this protein. Our bodies are such a testament to the Creator and how intricately we are knit together. He is just inconceivable to me!

Physically we need this little protein cross but spiritually we have to have it too. The world is ripping apart at the seams from the ravages of sin. People everywhere are desperate messes without the cross and hope of Jesus. It is only with the blood and sacrifice of The Cross that we can be preciously and perfectly held together. God gave us a cross physically and spiritually. So sweet.

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.
He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation,
for through him God created everything
in the heavenly realms and on earth.
He made the things we can see
and the things we can’t see—
such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world.
Everything was created through him and for him.
He existed before anything else,
and he holds all creation together.

Colossians 1:15-17
