20 you were bought for a price; then glorify God with your body.
Bible verses about "surrendering" | Moffatt
17 (You see, faith must come from what is heard, and what is heard comes from word of Christ.)
1 My dear children, I am writing this to you that you may not sin; but if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father in Jesus Christ the just; 2 he is himself the propitiation for our sins, though not for ours alone but also for the whole world. 3 This is how we may be sure we know him, by obeying his commands. 4 He who says, 'I know him,' but does not obey his commands, is a liar and the truth is not in him; 5 but whoever obeys his word, in him love to God is really complete. This is how we may be sure we are in him: 6 he who says he 'remains in him' ought to live as he lived. 7 Beloved, I am not writing you any new command, but an old command which you have had from the very beginning: the old command is the word you have heard. 8 And yet it is a new command I am writing to you — realized in him and also in yourselves, because the darkness is passing away and the true light is already shining. 9 He who says he is 'in the light' and hates his brother, is in darkness still. 10 He who loves his brother remains in the light — and in the light there is no pitfall; 11 but he who hates his brother is in darkness, he walks in darkness and does not know where he is going, for the darkness has blinded his eyes. 12 My dear children, I am writing to you, because your sins are forgiven for his sake: 13 fathers, I am writing to you, because you know him who is from the very beginning: young men, I am writing to you, because you have conquered the evil One. Children, I have written to you, because you know the Father: 14 fathers, I have written to you, because you know him who is from the very beginning: young men, I have written to you, because you are strong, and the word of God remains within you, and you have conquered the evil One. 15 Love not the world, nor yet what is in the world; if anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the proud glory of life, belongs not to the Father but to the world; 17 and the world is passing away with its desire, while he who does the will of God remains for ever. 18 Children, it is the last hour. You have learned that 'Antichrist is coming.' Well, but many antichrists have appeared — which makes us sure it is the last hour. 19 They withdrew from us, but they did not belong to us; had they belonged to us, they would have remained with us, but they withdrew to make it plain that they are none of us. 20 Now, you have been anointed by the holy One, and you all possess knowledge. 21 I am not writing to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and know that no lie has any connexion with the truth. 22 Who is the real liar? who but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is 'antichrist,' he who disowns the Father and the Son. 23 No one who disowns the Son can possess the Father: he who confesses the Son possesses the Father as well. 24 Let that remain in you which you learned from the very beginning; if what you learned from the very beginning remains with you, then you will remain in the Son and in the Father. 25 Now this is what he has promised you, eternal life. 26 I am writing to you in this way about those who would deceive you, 27 but the unction you received from him remains within you, and you really need no teaching from anyone; simply remain in him, for his unction teaches you about everything and is true and is no lie — remain in him, as it has taught you to do. 28 Remain within him now, my dear children, so that when he appears we may have confidence, instead of shrinking from him in shame at his arrival. 29 As you know he is just, be sure that everyone who practises righteousness is born of him.
12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have been obedient always and not simply when I was present, so, now that I am absent, work all the more strenuously at your salvation with reverence and trembling, 13 for it is God who in his goodwill enables you to will this and to achieve it. 14 In all that you do, avoid grumbling and disputing, 15 so as to be blameless and innocent, faultless children of God in a crooked and perverse generation where you shine like stars in a dark world; 16 hold fast the word of life, so that I can be proud of you on the Day of Christ, because I have not run or worked for nothing.
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.
13 No temptation has waylaid you that is beyond man's power; trust God, he will never let you be tempted beyond what you can stand, but when temptation comes, he will provide the way out of it, so that you can bear up under it.
8 draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, "If anyone wishes to come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me; 25 for whoever wants to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. 26 What profit will it be if a man gains the whole world and forfeits his own soul? What will a man offer as an equivalent for his soul? 27 For the Son of man is coming in the glory of his Father with his angels, and then he will reward everyone for what he has done.
