Blood, What Is It?

(Leviticus 17:11, 14; Romans 3:24-26)

Blood is a fluid connective tissue. It brings life to every living cell. In its amazing functions and complexities of details we are amazed at God’s wisdom!  He created the blood’s means of transportation called the circulatory system.  Through it the blood transports nutrients to the cells, oxygen to the lungs, removes carbon dioxide from it; it transports waste to the liver and kidneys, it fights diseases, it regulates body temperature; at the sight of injury, it applies the process of blood clotting, called blood platelet. It is amazing how it supposedly rescues us from bleeding to death! The blood is composed of 55% plasma- (the liquid part of the blood), white blood cells, which protects the body from pathogens, and platelet – the blood clotting process. It is composed of 45% of red blood cells- the most numerous living cells in the body. It carries oxygen molecules to individual cells where it is needed. The blood is a true wonder of God’s creation; a true wonder of God’s wisdom. Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unfathomable are His judgments! And how untraceable are His ways! (Rom. 11:33)
