The importance of Christ’s example

In the same way in which Christ sacrificed Himself for our sins when He offered Himself up on the Cross, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer yourselves as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God- this is your true and proper worship.

Based on Hebrews 7:27, Romans 12:1
