The Cross In Nature

He is before all things and in Him all things hold together.  Colosians 1:17

Laminin is a molecule that structurally holds cells together.  It sometimes appears under the microscope in the shape of a cross.  Interesting that a needed part of cell structure fits a verse in Colossians 1. Verse 17 says ‘He is before all thngs and in Him all things hold together.

The Whirlpool Galaxy, also known as M51 has a black hole at its center.  The shadow of the Cross is evident in many of the pictures taken by NASA and the Hubble Space Telescope.

 

Some pine trees form crosses as part of their new growth each spring.  It’s interesting that trees we use for the celebration of Christmas send up crosses on the end of their branches just before Easter.

God can and does use all of His  creation to remind us of His presence.

Watch for Him.  He’s everywhere!

Blessings to you and yours!

  1. Great post! I didn’t realise the sign of the cross showed up so much in nature. It’s amazing how God put those little reminders everywhere of what really holds things together.
