I get to read this Today At Church!!!!

It always makes me nervous to read in front of the church. I feel even more compelled by the words of God, when I read in community:
New International Version (NIV)
Romans 12:1-2

Listen to this passage

Romans 12
Living Sacrifices
 1Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual[a] act of worship.2Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.


  1. Romans 12:1 Or reasonable
New International Version (NIV)

1 Corinthians 14:20-26

Listen to this passage

 20Brothers, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults. 21In the Law it is written:
   "Through men of strange tongues
      and through the lips of foreigners
   I will speak to this people,
      but even then they will not listen to me,"
a] says the Lord.

 22Tongues, then, are a sign, not for believers but for unbelievers; prophecy, however, is for believers, not for unbelievers. 23So if the whole church comes together and everyone speaks in tongues, and some who do not understand[b] or some unbelievers come in, will they not say that you are out of your mind? 24But if an unbeliever or someone who does not understand[c]comes in while everybody is prophesying, he will be convinced by all that he is a sinner and will be judged by all, 25and the secrets of his heart will be laid bare. So he will fall down and worship God, exclaiming, "God is really among you!"

Orderly Worship
 26What then shall we say, brothers? When you come together, everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church.

  1. 1 Corinthians 14:21 Isaiah 28:11,12
  2. 1 Corinthians 14:23 Or some inquirers
  3. 1 Corinthians 14:24 Or or some inquirer
