I ask you to give your body as a living sacrifice, and then I go on to draw a parallel and describe my followers collectively as one body, the Body of Christ. You are more than parts in a machine. Is there any part of your own body that you would cheerfully part with? No man hates his own flesh, but loves and cherishes it. You are highly motivated to keep your body intact. Are there those within the Body of Christ that you would be willing to part with? But I put them there for a reason, and they too have their purpose. Can you extend the principle of defending the integrity of your own body to my body?
