LIVING WELL : In the Body of Christ

In view of God's mercy I say this to you
offer your body as a sacrifice in a manner pure and true
it's about finally living well in the body of Christ
to be holy, pleasing and acceptable in God's sight

no longer willing to conform to the patterns of worldly designs
now willing to be transformed with a godly renewal of the mind
for by the grace that was given to each and everyone
to not think so highly of yourself but to be humble like the Son

It's time for us to start living much healthier lives
for our bodies are precious temples in the eyes of Christ
so fed it well, exercise it and abstain from drugs and drink
to be sober in our judgement and the way we now think

It's about us living well in the body of Christ
to understand we all have different roles in life
just as the ears do the hearing your talent might be teaching
just as the feet do the walking your gift might be preaching
just as the hands do the touching your function might be serving
just as the eyes do the seeing your purpose in God's sight is worth preserving

living well in the body of Christ according to the grace that was given to us
living well in the body of Christ by the mercy of Christ Jesus
now healthier, now fitter, exercising and eating right
full of the joy of the Lord basking in His brilliant light
to be encouraging, giving generously, diligent and cheerful in life
it's all about living well in the body of our Lord Jesus the Christ
