Living Sacrifices
(1 Corinthians 3:16–23; 1 Corinthians 6:18–20)

1I BESEECH you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2And be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renovation of your mind, that you may prove by experience what is the will of God, that is good, acceptable, and perfect.

3For, I say, by the grace which is given unto me, to every one that is among you, not to think of himself above what he ought to think; but to think soberly, as God has divided to every one the measure of faith. 4For as we have in one body many members, but the members, though many, have not the same function, 5so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one reciprocally members of each other. 6Having then different gifts according to the grace which is given unto us, if it be prophecy, speak according to the analogy of faith; 7or if the deacon?s office, be active in the service; or he that teacheth, in teaching; 8or he that exhorteth, in exhortation; he that distributes, let him do it with simplicity; he that presideth, with diligence; he that is employed in acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.

Love, Zeal, Hope, Hospitality
(John 13:31–35; 1 John 3:11–24)

9Let love be undissembled. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. 10In brotherly affection be tenderly attached to each other; in honour preferring one another: 11not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord: 12rejoicing in hope; patient in affliction; persevering in prayer: 13communicating to the wants of the saints; prompt to hospitality.

(Matthew 18:21–35)

14Bless them who persecute you; bless, and curse not. 15Rejoice with those that rejoice, and weep with those that weep. 16Be of the same mind among each other. Affect not high things, but be condescending to the lowly. Be not wise in your own conceits. 17Render to no man evil for evil. Be provident of things laudable in the sight of all men. 18If possible, as far as you can, be at peace with all men. 19Avenge not yourselves, beloved, but give place unto wrath: for it is written, ?Vengeance belongeth to me; I will recompence, saith the Lord.? 20If therefore thine enemy hunger, give him food; if he thirst, give him drink: for so doing, thou shalt heap up coals of fire on his head. 21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
