I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, a by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual b worship.
Do not be conformed to this world, c but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect. d
