The New Life in Christ
1 I Beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye give up your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable serving of God.
2 And fashion not yourselves like unto this world, but be ye changed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is the good, and acceptable and perfect will of God.
3 For I say through the grace that is given unto me, to every one that is among you, that no man presume to understand above that which is meet to understand, but that he understand according to sobriety, as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
4 For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not one office,
5 So we being many, are one body in Christ, and every one, one another's members.
6 Seeing then that we have gifts that are divers, according to the grace that is given unto us, whether we have prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
7 Or an office, let us wait on the office, or he that teacheth, on teaching;
8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation; he that distributeth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
9 Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil, and cleave unto that which is good.
10 Be affectioned to love one another with brotherly love. In giving honor, go one before another;
11 Not slothful to do service; fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;
12 Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing in prayer,
13 Distributing unto the necessities of the Saints; giving yourselves to hospitality.
14 Bless them which persecute you; bless, I say, and curse not.
15 Rejoice with them that rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
16 Be of like affection one towards another. Be not highminded, but make yourselves equal to them of the lower sort. Be not wise in yourselves.
17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Procure things honest in the sight of all men.
18 If it be possible, as much as in you is, have peace with all men.
19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but give place unto wrath, for it is written, Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord.
20 Therefore if thine enemy 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 overcome evil with goodness.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
"Let not Geneva be forgotten or despised. Religious liberty owes it most respect." John Adams, the second president of the United States
Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.reformedreader.org/gbn/igb.htmYahoo Group Owner
