Dedicated Service

1 Therefore 1I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to 2present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.
2 And do not 3be conformed to 4this world, but be transformed by the 5renewing of your mind, so that you may 6prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
3 For through 7the grace given to me I say to everyone among you 8not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to 9each a measure of faith.
4 For 10just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function,
5 so we, 11who are many, are 12one body in Christ, and individually * members one of another.
