Wow

I recently took a trip out to beautiful and sunny California. I was truly jaw droppingly amazed at the scenery surrounding the cities I visited. It's one of the few places in the world that you can see the desert, ocean, and mountains all in the same place. It's incredible. I know I sound like a total tourist, and yes, I have been to Cali before. This time, however, something seemed different. Maybe it's because I am older now and appreciate everything a little more than I used to. I don't know, but I was really inspired by what I saw. I was genuinely amazed at the creativity of our God.

US Armored Units in the North African and Italian Campaigns 1942–45 (Battle Orders)

The Bible says in Romans 12:1 that we should offer our bodies as living sacrifices to God. It then goes on to say that such an offering is our "reasonable" service. The NIV calls this sacrifice our "spiritual act of worship". It's interesting to note the association between worship and sacrifice found throughout the Bible. Today it seems that worship has become about the performers or the song more so than the sacrifice. One of the first places we see worship mentioned in the Bible is when Abraham is telling his servants where he and his son are going, and what they would be doing. Abraham told...
