Who is Master?

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service."
Romans 12:1 NKJV

The previous appeal to the will (I beseech you) means that the will is to be the master over the body. The thinking of our age says that our body [spirit, soul, flesh, and mind] must tell the will what to do; but the Bible says that our will must bring the body as a living sacrifice to God. The body is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master. Keeping it at God's altar as a living sacrifice keeps the body where it should be.
