Of Binding and Bonding -- By Suresh Manoharan

"For there is only one God and one Mediator who can "reconcile" God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time" (I Tim 2:5-6)

Okay folks, yet another graphic truth emerges from “Nature” about the “Supernatural” bonding mechanism between God and man. Agreed, we all know cells are the basic unit of life in the human body. Take em’ out, and we all go out of existence! Ever pondered on what keeps the cells “reconciled” (read glued) as it were, to each other, in order the human body remains as one piece? Well, the Great Designer has “embroidered” a protein network foundation called the Laminins into the “tapestry” of our bodies in order the cells do not fall apart. Ever wondered how a Laminin –the binding agent- looks like? It took my breath away, when I saw its picture, I am sure it would take your breath away too…

Oh boy! Oh Boy! It exactly looks like a cross. The Cross of Christ, which keeps Holy God and unholy man, "reconciled" to each other! For more details about Laminin, you may click on the following link…


"For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ’s blood on the cross." (Colossians 1:19-20)

Is not the Laminin, its shape and function, a pointer to the Cross? Absolutely! It pays to keep the truth about Laminin “laminated” in our minds, right? Better still, circulate this devotional amongst your friends and beyond…
