To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship.
He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
