There are physical receptors (glycoproteins) on cells. Communication takes place within the body if sugars (glycans) are in the correct place on these cell surface sugar antennas. For example, the hormone insulin can dock on specific insulin cell receptors and communicate to the cell the need to take in glucose from the blood and use it for energy. Miscommunication can take place if there is not enough insulin or if the cell receptors are not built correctly (glycans are not in place). 

In a similar manner, I believe we have spiritual cell receptors that allow us to feel God’s love. His love is always there but if we are missing things on our spiritual cell receptors, we might not be able to feel that love. Things like desiring to do good, reading the scriptures, overcoming an addiction, being calm, loving others, and praying can all strengthen our spiritual cell receptor sensitivity. My hope this year for you is that you can experience God’s love personally and know without a doubt that He loves you as His precious child. He gave His perfect and Holy Son so that we could be forgiven of anything we’ve done wrong. We can also have His enabling grace and strength to overcome any weakness we may have. The peace the passeth all understanding and true joy are found by getting to know the Babe born in Bethlehem two thousand years ago. Here is a wonderful video depicting that event. Angie and I wish you a Merry Christmas and look forward to the coming New Year!
