I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.

Paul encouraged the Romans to present themselves as living sacrifices to God. That means acknowledging that everything we have, even every breath we take, belongs to Him. Then, with that in mind, turn every part of our lives back to Him as an act of worship. What we do on Sabbath in corporate worship is important in our spiritual growth. However, Paul reminded us that worship is a full-bodied, whole person experience that happens as we live out our faith. The quality of our worship comes in how we live out our faith every day, not just the corporate worship we join in weekly with our church family.
