“To present my body a living sacrifice to God, in a holy and acceptable manner, which is just my reasonable service. But most of all, to not be conformed to this world, but to submit myself to God to be transformed by the renewing of my mind that I may be living proof of the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
