As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you" (John 17:18; 20:21).
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 (Romans 12:2).
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 (Romans 12:1).
