High School Science class question…………..Anyone know what laminin is?
This past February, in those dark ages before I was a blogger, I attended a Chris Tomlin/Matt Redman/Louie Giglio concert. The concert was a great experience and the speaker for the night was Louie Giglio, the founder of the popular college Passion Conferences. One of the things he spoke on that night was laminin, now before you go running for your Greek lexicon for your bible, stop, because laminin is not in the bible. It’s a protein in your body!
Every living creature has laminin inside of them…the purpose of laminin is that it basically keeps our bodies from falling apart. It holds us as one united whole. It’s like the glue that holds our cells together. So for those of you who are still with me on this one…………..laminin is a critical part of our body make up.
Now here is what is so amazing that Louie Giglio explained so well to us that night, laminin the very structure that hold us together looks like this…………
The cellular structure that holds our body together is the shape of the cross! Does God have a sense of humor or what! Amazing isn’t it? :) This is a glorious reminder to me that when the rough times comes, and the storm of life takes hold of me, what is holding my physical body together is a cellular protein in the shape of a cross!!! We truly are wonderfully made.
To actually here Louie Giglio speak on this is riveting. Check out the You Tube video of Louie Giglio speaking on laminin, they don’t have the whole thing, but you can get the idea from it.
