A Living Sacrifice

Romans 12:1-8 (NKJV)

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which  is your reasonable service. 

2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. 

4 For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, 

5 so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. 

6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let  us  use them: if prophecy, let  us prophesy in proportion to our faith; 

7 or ministry, let  us  use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; 

8 he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
