“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think [of himself] more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, [being] many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another” (Romans 12:1-5).
Did you ever inadvertently smash your thumb with a hammer? Though your thumb received the blow, the rest of your body that wasn’t hammer-smashed still hurts or is affected in other ways. So, if something serious strikes the body of one member, all the rest are affected therewith.
