  9. 9. Romans 12:1-8 (NLT) <ul><li>1 And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will accept. When you think of what he has done for you, is this too much to ask? </li></ul>
  10. 10. Romans 12:1-8 (NLT) <ul><li>2 Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is. </li></ul>

  14. 14. 1 Corinthians 4:6-7 (NLT) <ul><li>7 What makes you better than anyone else? What do you have that God hasn't given you? And if all you have is from God, why boast as though you have accomplished something on your own? </li></ul>

  17. 17. Ephesians 4:4-7 (NLT) <ul><li>6 and there is only one God and Father, who is over us all and in us all and living through us all. </li></ul><ul><li>7 However, he has given each one of us a special gift according to the generosity of Christ. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Romans 12:1-8 (NLT) <ul><li>4 Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, </li></ul><ul><li>5 so it is with Christ's body.

  20. 20. Romans 12:1-8 (NLT) <ul><li>8 If your gift is to encourage others, do it! If you have money, share it generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. </li></ul>
