VII. Transformation
A. In Practicing the Body Life
1. By the Presenting of Our Bodies
  1. I exhort you therefore, brothers, through the compassions of God to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service.
2. By the Renewing of the Mind
  1. And do not be fashioned according to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of the mind that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and well pleasing and perfect.
  2. For I say, through the grace given to me, to every one who is among you, not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think, but to think so as to be sober-minded, as God has apportioned to each a measure of faith.
3. By the Exercising of the Gifts
  1. For just as in one body we have many members, and all the members do not have the same function,
  2. So we who are many are one Body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
  3. And having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
  4. Or service, let us be faithful in that service; or he who teaches, in that teaching;
  5. Or he who exhorts, in that exhortation; he who gives, in simplicity; he who leads, in diligence; he who shows mercy, in cheerfulness.
