Think about it!     ITim 4:7  Rom 12:1
God’s people are no longer required to bring animals to the alter as an offering and sacrifice but are now required to bring themselves wholly to God as a living sacrifice. Their lives are no longer their own.
Eph. 5:2,10 Tell story of old saint who stood up at church and the sweet smell of Christ flowered.  Proving what is acceptable to God. I Peter 2:5
