Laminins are a family of proteins that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in almost every tissue. 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 NOT a 'Christian' view, laminin can be found in any scientific/medical piece of literature, and this is what you will see. God is indeed --- and in word, the MOST profound and amazing Father of all creation! The glue that holds us together, all of us---is in the shape of the cross! 'He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or Authorities; 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 The book of Ephesians speaks about how AWESOME we are as creations of God! "In Him, we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. And He made known to us the mystery of His will according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fullfillment --- to bring ALL THINGS in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ." Ephesians 1:7. In Genesis 1:24 "Let US make man in OUR image." God the Father, Jesus the Christ, and the Holy Spirit, together as ONE awesome Creator, spoke the universe into being. Visit a grave yard and LISTEN. Press your ear agaist the tombstone. Do you hear what the Spirit is saying? Jesus said to them "Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to." Luke 13:24 God's living and active Word is a light that we must choose to follow. Our star-breathing, universe creating God ALSO knitted our bodies together with amazing detail and wonder. From a medical standpoint, the intricate design of the human body is fascinating! From Doctor Luke's transformed doctor's perspective, the longer he practiced medicine, the more Luke followed Jesus, the more amazed he became about God's handiwork. Considering the perfection required for all the bio-chemistry, for the eye to see, for blood to pump, for the cells to repair, this doctor questioned 'How can ANYONE deny that a Creator did all of this? Doctor Luke 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 falling apart...how our loving Creator is also our sustainer. The structure of laminin looks like a flaming cross. Call me a crazy Christian and I will be most proud to say "YES I AM A FOLLOWER, A BELIEVER of Jesus Christ" AMEN! Thousands of years before UNBELIEVERS or scholars knew anything about laminin, Paul penned the words in the book of Colossians. With the visual PICTURE herein, we get a GLIMPSE of our inside. From a very LITERAL standpoint, we are ALL held together...One cell to another.... By the cross. We are marked, we are sealed by laminin, by our all knowing, all loving Creator. He knew EXACTLY what laminin 'glue' would look like long before Adam breathed his first breath!!
