Paul counsels the Saints to present their bodies as a living sacrifice, to use their own grace-given gifts, and to live as Saints should live.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to athink of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think bsoberly, according as cGod hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same aoffice:
7 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with acheerfulness.
13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to ahospitality.
15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and aweep with them that weep.
18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live apeaceably with all men.
19 Dearly beloved, aavenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
20 Therefore if thine aenemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
21 Be not overcome of evil, but aovercome evil with good.
