Good morning!

Greetings in the name of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
 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. 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 12:1-2)
We are prisoners of hope that will never fade.  The hope is granted by God, and is continuously renewed day by day (and even moment by moment) by Him.  He quietly whispers this Hope to our ears with His loving voice.  Yes, we are intimately connected to Him through His love.   We sure that either death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from this love of God.  (Romans 8:38-39)  This assuring love is plainly and openly demonstrated and proved on the cross.  Our Lord, Jesus Christ, has no sin at all, but He was crucified and died on the cross.  His condemnation was our blessing.   Through His sacrificial death, our debts are fully paid.  No longer can the power of the eternal death of sin command us.   What else can we ask more?  
This is the greatest gift that we can ever receive from now and eternity.   In fact, we all are continuously discovering and rediscovering the greatness of this love — how wide and long and deep the love of Christ is.  Through this love, we are renewed every day because our heart is continuously filled with Holy Spirit through this love of Jesus Christ.   Daily, we are growing deeper into the relationship with God.  Through the Holy Spirit interceding us, we are slowly but steadily maturing in the love, and grasps the truth of His love, which surpasses all knowledge that our human beings have ever found and will discover in future.  Thanks to God!   Give our highest praises to Him, the One and Only One God.   We are truly free in Him, for Him and by Him.  Shout for joy before Him, and make a joyful noise before God.
Therefore, we need to walk in a manner worthy of His love.  Apostle Paul urges us to present our bodies as a living sacrifice by the mercies of God.   Without the mercies, we are not worthy to present ourselves as a living sacrifice.  Only is this possible through the mercies of God.   In fact, we supposedly die with our own sins, but, His mercies took away this eternal condemnation in His love.   As a result, we become an objective worthy of presenting to God, who is holy without any darkness at all.  God, our eternal Father, lovingly accept us as a living sacrifice accordingly His infinitely goodness, which is our spiritual service and worship before Him, which He truly pleases.   What a blessing it is!   
Yes, the world is full of darkness.  Our citizenship is in Heaven that is our eternal Home.   Our names have already been written on the Book of Life in Heaven.  On earth we are just on the way to our eternal Home.  Thus, Satan tenaciously temps us so that we might be derailed from the paths of righteousness.  Satan throws at us all kinds of temptations so that we might become a victim of his crafty scheme.  His craftiness deceives us by making us being pumped up, being proud of what we do, and chasing down what we crave for instead of being a living sacrifice before Him.   This deception is not obvious at the time of getting temptations.  If not, we would easily reject them.  Yes, they are very subtle, and slowly wedging in the intimacy between God and us.  Thus, nobody is immune to the Satan’s attack.  “And when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from him until an opportune time” (Luke 4:13)  
Therefore, we need to be transformed, and we constantly renewed to guard our hearts and minds against Satan, who is always searching for an opportune time.     We continuously test and examine ourselves to discern what is the will of God by reading His Word, and talking and listening to Him through prayers.    Then the peace of God that transcends all our understanding will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.   This spiritual battle and keeping ourselves in Him is the very object of our living sacrifices to God, which is good and acceptable to God.   We also know that we will never be perfect, but God, full of mercies, does not look at our imperfectness.  Instead He declares that we are perfect.  What a mercy, grace and love of His!  Yes, He will be with us from now on earth till we see Him face to face in the Heaven, our eternal Home.   
Then what we can do?  We approach to Him with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, and eager to maintain the unity in God as His children.  
There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call— one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.  (Ephesians 4:4-7)
Praise God, full of mercies and grace!   One who loves us without rotating shadow.   In Him, we have an eternal peace.   Through His love, we are connected together and build up one body. The head is Jesus Christ, who died for us as the sacrificial lamb for all our sins.   Give the highest praise to Jesus Christ!    And thanks to God, who sends Holy Spirit, the Helper, who resides in us, who is the very assuring seal in our heart of His Unfathomable Love,   Praise God.  His mercy endures forever!    God is good and infinitely good to us.   Sing praises to Him!   Hallelujah!   Our Eternal Father!

 I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.  (Ephesians 4:1-3)
