The leader of the gang said, "This must be a miracle, for there could not be that much rain in such a short period of time unless it was done to save us. Tell us how we can join you."
I said to them," I call you now aside, friends, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice to God. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds.
For I say, through the grace given to me, to evryone that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly and use what God has given you to the best of your ability. For we are members of one body, each with a different function.
Let us love without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil, Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another. Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, and give hospitality to strangers.
Bless those who persecute you. Rejoice with those that rejoice, and weep with those that weep.
Repay no one evil for evil. Do not avenge yourselves.
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."
