Galatians 2:20

20 I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, Christ lives in me; the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself up for me.

1 Corinthians 6:19

19 Do you not know your body is the temple of the holy Spirit within you — the Spirit you have received from God? You are not your own,

Romans 12:1

1 Well then, my brothers, I appeal to you by all the mercy of God to dedicate your bodies as a living sacrifice, consecrated and acceptable to God; that is your cult, a spiritual rite.

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

14 [Keep out of all incongruous ties with unbelievers. What have righteousness and iniquity in common, or how can light associate with darkness? 15 What harmony can there be between Christ and Beliar, or what business has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 What compact can there be between God's temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God — as God has said, I will dwell and move among them, I will be their God and they shall be my people. 17 Therefore come away from them, separate, saith the Lord, touch not what is unclean; then I will receive you, 18 I will be a Father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord almighty.

Romans 13:14

14 No, put on the character of the Lord Jesus Christ, and never think how to gratify the cravings of the flesh.

Romans 1:1-32

1 PAUL, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God 2 (which he promised of old by his prophets in the holy scriptures) 3 concerning his Son, who was born of David's offspring by natural descent 4 and installed as Son of God with power by the Spirit of holiness when he was raised from the dead — concerning Jesus Christ our Lord, 5 through whom I have received the favour of my commission to promote obedience to the faith for his sake among all the Gentiles, 6 including yourselves who are called to belong to Jesus Christ: 7 to all in Rome who are beloved by God, called to be saints, grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 8 First of all, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, because the report of your faith is over all the world. 9 God is my witness, the God whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, how unceasingly I always mention you in my prayers, 10 asking if I may at last be sped upon my way to you by God's will. 11 For I do yearn to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift for your strengthening — 12 or, in other words, that I may be encouraged by meeting you, I by your faith and you by mine. 13 Brothers, I would like you to understand that I have often purposed to come to you (though up till now I have been prevented) so as to have some results among you as well as among the rest of the Gentiles. 14 To Greeks and to barbarians, to wise and to foolish alike, I owe a duty. 15 Hence my eagerness to preach the gospel to you in Rome as well. 16 For I am proud of the gospel; it is God's saving power for everyone who has faith, for the Jew first and for the Greek as well. 17 God's righteousness is revealed in it by faith and for faith — as it is written, Now by faith shall the righteous live. 18 But God's anger is revealed from heaven against all the impiety and wickedness of those who hinder the Truth by their wickedness. 19 For whatever is to be known of God is plain to them; God himself has made it plain — 20 for ever since the world was created, his invisible nature, his everlasting power and divine being, have been quite perceptible in what he has made. So they have no excuse. 21 Though they knew God, they have not glorified him as God nor given thanks to him; they have turned to futile speculations till their ignorant minds grew dark. 22 They claimed to be wise, but they have become fools; 23 they have exchanged the glory of the immortal God for the semblance of the likeness of mortal man, of birds, of quadrupeds, and of reptiles. 24 So God has given them up, in their heart's lust, to sexual vice, to the dishonouring of their own bodies, — 25 since they have exchanged the truth of God for an untruth, worshipping and serving the creature rather than the Creator who is blessed for ever: Amen. 26 That is why God has given them up to vile passions; their women have exchanged the natural function of sex for what is unnatural, 27 and in the same way the males have abandoned the natural use of women and flamed out in lust for one another, men perpetrating shameless acts with their own sex and getting in their own persons the due recompense of their perversity. 28 Yes, as they disdained to acknowledge God any longer, God has given them up to a reprobate instinct, for the perpetration of what is improper, 29 till they are filled with all manner of wickedness, depravity, lust, and viciousness, filled to the brim with envy, murder, quarrels, intrigues, and malignity — slanderers, 30 defamers, loathed by God, outrageous, haughty, boastful, inventive in evil, disobedient to parents, 31 devoid of conscience, false to their word, callous, merciless; 32 though they know God's decree that people who practise such vice deserve death, they not only do it themselves but applaud those who practise it.

2 Corinthians 7:1

1 As these great promises are ours, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that contaminates either flesh or spirit; let us be fully consecrated by reverence for God].

Romans 12:1-2

1 Well then, my brothers, I appeal to you by all the mercy of God to dedicate your bodies as a living sacrifice, consecrated and acceptable to God; that is your cult, a spiritual rite. 2 Instead of being moulded to this world, have your mind renewed, and so be transformed in nature, able to make out what the will of God is, namely, what is good and acceptable to him and perfect.

1 Peter 1:16

16 for it is written, You shall be holy because I am holy.

John 15:19

19 If you belonged to the world, the world would love what it owned; it is because you do not belong to the world, because I have chosen you from the world, that the world hates you.

Ephesians 2:10

10 God has made us what we are, creating us in Christ Jesus for the good deeds which are prepared beforehand by God as our sphere of action.

John 17:15-18

15 I pray not that thou wilt take them out of the world, but that thou wilt keep them from the evil one. 16 They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. 17 Consecrate them by thy truth: thy word is truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into the world, so have I sent them into the world,

1 Peter 2:9

9 But you are the elect race, the royal priesthood, the consecrated nation, the People who belong to Him, that you may proclaim the wondrous deeds of Him who has called you from darkness to his wonderful light —

Romans 12:2

2 Instead of being moulded to this world, have your mind renewed, and so be transformed in nature, able to make out what the will of God is, namely, what is good and acceptable to him and perfect.
