The Human Design -- Awesome. Period.

"In the beginning was the WORD,... All things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made (John 1:1, 3)."

Below is a TED Talk that was presented in 2007 by David Bolinsky, a medical animator. In it, the speaker emphasizes two words: truth and beauty. Immediately, I thought of the verse:

"O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness (Psalm 96:9)."

Of course, it may not directly relate; but that's what I thought of.

I also considered that God is truth, as pointed out in John 17:17 -- "Sanctify them through Thy truth: Thy word is truth." (Note: John 1 establishes for us that the Word is God; therefore, we may safely conclude that because the word is truth, God is truth.)

The speaker also mentions with awe the magnificence of human structure, and notes how he feels like he could almost worship it. I would say to worship the Lord who made heaven and earth, the sea, and the fountains of water; the Lord who made you and me in His own image and after His own likeness, and formed us with His own hands (Revelation 14:7; Genesis 1:26-27, 2:7). Even our cells.

Each of our itty-bitty cells were crafted by the Master Scientist, the Word, the Lamb of God. Each was made to work at its own job, to fulfill its duty with diligence (That is my brothers' key word for their current unit in their school work). 

Paul says that we are God's workmanship (Ephesians 2:10). We are fashioned to do good works; to take care of our ever-working bodies, for example. :) Will we do that for the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world? Will we do that for Him?

"For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him and for Him (Colossians 1:16)."
