The Epistle to the Romans, chapter 12


The life of believers: 12.1-15.13


The church and its services

Rom 12: 1In the face of the mercy of God, I exhort you, my brethren, to offer yourselves as a living and holy sacrifice, which is pleasing to God; this is the true and proper worship for you.Rom 12.2Do not conform to this world, but change yourselves and renew your thinking so that you can examine and recognize what God's will is: what pleases him, what is good and perfect.Rom 12: 3Because of the grace that has been given to me, I say to each of you: Do not strive beyond what is yours, but strive to be prudent, each according to the measure of faith that God has given him.Rom 12.4For as we have many members in the one body, but not all members perform the same service,Rom 12,5so we, the many, are one body in Christ, but as individuals we are members who belong to one another.Rom 12: 6We have different gifts depending on the grace given to us. If anyone has the gift of prophetic speech, speak in accordance with faith;Rom 12.7if one has the gift of service, serve. He who is called to teach teach;Rom 12.8he who is called to comfort and admonish, comfort and admonish. Those who give give without ulterior motives; whoever is a ruler, work zealously; whoever practices mercy do it joyfully..
