The complexity of the body and the marvelous works that it accomplishes ought to cause each person to believe in divine creation. The most complex camera is not worthy to be compared to the human eye which in a moment can distinguish between nearly eight billion colors. What electronic equipment is as sensitive as the ear? Working with the brain, it can discriminate among more than 300,000 tones.

The Bible declares that the blood is the life of the body (Genesis 9:4). It brings life-giving oxygen and carries away the life-destroying waste products.  The heart pumps more than 2,000 gallons of blood a day through 100,000 miles of the body’s circulatory system.  Though the heart is just a 10 to 12 ounce muscle, it does enough work each day to lift 2,000 pounds five stories.  To keep fresh blood in one’s system, the body produces one billion red blood cells every day.  

The 600 muscles are individual engines working together for coordination, movement and balance.  If all 600 muscles of one’s body pulled in one direction, it could lift 25 tons.

No heating and cooling system compares with that of the skin.  It serves as the body’s thermostat.  Billions of touch receptors make one sensitive pressure, heat, cold and pain.  New skin is constantly being produced to replace the old skin. Yet, finger print patterns never change, and no two people have identical finger prints.

This intricate system hangs together on a framework made of bone.  Pound for pound, it is stronger than wood, concrete, and even steel.  One cubic inch of bone can withstand two tons of force.  

Truly, we can say with David, “I will give thanks to You; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14).
