I looked up “laminin” on google images and was surprised to find not only a lot of graphs and drawings but T-SHIRTS with laminin charts drawn on. On showed the laminin cross and said, “Thank you Darwin”. Well??? Not sure about that. What we can be sure of is God’s Word:
‘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.’
And now we see that from a very LITERAL standpoint, we are held together… One cell to another…. By the cross.
When I speak of the cross on this blog, I DO want to see the cross lifted up all across our nation. All across the world, actually. But in saying “the cross” I do not mean the jewelry or the wooden lighted cross in my back yard. “The Cross” is the all-encompassing way to refer to the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ on the cross. Rather than use a series of wonderful words and phrases to explain that sacrifice, I simply say “the cross”.
I want to continue to share on the power of the cross to heal our souls in upcoming blogs. But for now, please think on this:
Sanctify—separate yourself. Set yourself apart. Be separated from sin, guilt, condemnation, victimization, and worry. (II Corinthians 10:1-5) Throw down all thoughts that produce that.
Sanctify—do NOT separate yourself from the cross. Don’t let a day go by without meditating on the cross. A powerful man of God who is now with the Lord said this, “As soon as the cross is misplaced, you will find yourself struggling, perplexed, confused, and even guilty. You’ll wonder what’s gone wrong in your life. What is wrong is that the cross is displaced from the center.”
The cross holds us together in body.
The cross holds us together in thoughts and feelings.
The cross holds us together in Spirit.
“So I’ll cling to the old rugged cross . . .”
Here’s a song to help us cling: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuudlTywjsM&feature=related
