  • Be thankful to God for his mercy: “propter gloriam Patris” , to the glory of God, the Father, who has filled us with all grace

  • What is good, perfect and pleasing to him (Rom 2:12): obedience
  • To present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship (Rom 2:12): consecration
