God’s Chemistry Again Outspaces Man’s

“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” Psalm 139:14

One of the greatest questions in biology asks how a single fertilized cell divides into many different cells – some become liver cells, skin cells, brain cells, and bone cells. This is the ultimate way of asking the question, “Where do babies come from?”

Human Nerve Growth FactorHuman growth factor – a chemical produced by our body – is being studied to see if it is responsible for the development of all those different cells from a single cell. However, this is only one of thirty known chemicals that influence the development of new cells. Another powerful chemical – called GM-CSF for short – has now been synthesized as a drug and stimulates the development of white blood cells in the bone marrow. This drug has saved otherwise doomed patients who have lost virtually all of their bone marrow by exposure to radiation. Nerve growth factor is another being studied as a possible treatment for Alzheimer’s disease and for use in re-attaching limbs.

Do you notice where all of these incredible chemicals come from? They don’t come from laboratories staffed with the best brains in science. They are produced by our bodies. Science should stand in awe at the evident wisdom behind those chemical structures and the way they work. And that’s one of the best arguments that we were created by a wise and powerful Creator, not by mindless chemical accidents!

Prayer:
Dear Lord, I am truly fearfully and wonderfully made. I ask that You would guide medical researchers so that they may learn how to use the substances You have created for the earthly betterment of our condition and that You would be glorified through this. Amen.
