4. In a recent newsletter, Assistant Pastor Kent of Calvary Baptist Church writes:

Over the past several months, the Museum of Idaho in IF has given visitors the unique opportunity to view up-close the amazing wonders of human body. One is able to see the interconnection of the skeletal, muscular, reproductive, respiratory, circulatory and other systems of the human body. One is also able to see the creativity and genius of God, our Creator. It is no surprise that the Apostle Paul uses the human body as a metaphor for how the church should function (see Romans 12).

Just as the human body depends on each individual part performing its own unique role in order for the entire body to function properly, so also the church depends on each individual member using his or her God-given gifts and abilities to serve the entire body so that it operates at full capacity. Paul says that it is an act of worship to present ourselves as a living sacrifice to God. A living sacrifice. In other words, we give up our own wants and desires (our will) in how we spend our time and money and energy, and align ourselves with what God wants (His will). And God’s will, as we clearly see in Scripture, is for us to use the gifts He has given us to serve the local church, the body of Christ.

Calvary Baptist Church is going to two worship services.

5.  Pastor Rick Brown of Calvary Chapel is preaching through Matthew and Leviticus.

6.  Seeing the twitter section at New Geneva Orthodox Presbyterian: We need to do more than sing “Amazing Grace”—we need to be repeatedly amazed by grace. -R.C. Sproul
