How A Body Stays Healthy! (11 of 13)
Series: Book Of Nehemiah
INTRO: David said it best in Psalms 139:14 "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."
The human body is the most amazing machine on the planet! It has literally multiple billions of cells ... and a large quantity of them are doing different things at different times and at the same time ... each dependant on the other, unique in function; equal in existence! We only seem to take notice of this marvelous order of life when it goes chaotic ... such as when cancer strikes; cells that multiply out of control. It is ironic that such a disease like cancer can kill us ... for it is our own cells doing what they are suppose to do, but not in their orderly fashion. They just take off and grow and grow until they take over the nourishment demands of the body and crowd out or eat away other important parts - the body then itself dies AND IRONICALLY THE CANCER dies with it! It quite literally kills itself along with all the other healthy tissue that struggles to keep order within the body!
We could not exist very well without order ... God Himself is a God of order ... we only have to examine nature and the skies at night to understand how true this is.
ILLUS: We ask the leaf, "Are you complete in yourself?" and the leaf answers, "No, my life is in the branches." We ask the branch, and the branch answers, "No, my life is in the trunk." We ask the trunk, and it answers, "No, my life is in the root." We ask the root, and it answers, "No, my life is in the trunk and the branches and the leaves. Keep the branches stripped of leaves and I shall die." So it is with the great tree of being. Nothing is completely and merely individual. -- Edward Everett (1794-1865) -- Edythe Draper, Draper's Book of Quotations for the Christian World (Wheaton: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., 1992).
