What Holds Us Together

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. What is quiet interesting is what they look like.

Just google "laminins" or go to

Now tell me that our God is not the coolest!!!
The 'glue' that holds us together....ALL of in the shape of the cross. Immediately Colossians 1:15-17 comes to mind.

Col 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

Col 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Col 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

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 cell to the cross.

You would never in a quadrillion years convince me that is anything other than the mark of a Creator who knew EXACTLY what laminin "glue" would look like long before Adam even breathed his first breath!!
