Many Bodies, One Sacrifice (Part 3): Christians in Conflict; Romans 12:14-21


Romans 12:1-2 describes the action that results from the mercies of God: many bodies offer themselves as one sacrifice.  This is the Body of Christ! Verses 3-13 describe how that impacts our relationships with one another, and verses 14-21 describe how that impacts our relationship with the non-believing world.
