Not so long ago, here at home we received a copy of Louie Giglio’s DVD HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD, and to say ‘it blew us away’ would be an understatement.
I want to share what Louie was talking about, and I will, but if I were asked to encapsulate it into a few words, I would say OUR GOD IS AN AMAZING GOD!
This is a picture of a Laminin
And this is whatWiki says about them:
You see Laminins are what holds us together! LITERALLY. They are cell adhesion molecules. Without them we would literally fall apart.
But LOOK at that picture – look at the shape of the structure of Laminin. And this is not a Christian portrayal of it either. Look it up in any medical
encyclopedia and this is what you will see.
Now tell me our God in not an Amazing God…. The glue that holds us all together… every single one of us, is in the shape of the cross.
In Colossians 1:15-17 it says:
He is the image of the invisible God
The first born of 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.
So you see thousands of years before the electron microscope, and the world knew anything about Laminin, Paul wrote those words. Now we see it from a very literal standpoint.
We are all held together – one cell to another – by the cross.
No one is ever going to convince me this is anything but the mark of my Creator God who knew exactly what Laminin Glue would look like, long before Adam drew his first breath!
AND A PRAYER:
Loving God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit
We come together right now in adoration and humility,
to thank you for conceiving us.
We remember we are made out of the very breath of God
We remember we are a sinful people
We remember we are loved and forgiven
We remember Jesus, born for us, died for us and rose for us
So that we could return to you at the appointed time, forgiven and ever loved.
As your children we give you praise honour and worship in Jesus Holy name.
