Paul is not shifting gears, he is going on with the same, total word of God. As we saw previously, he deals with the fact of predestination, that against an elite people, God is creating an elect people. And now Paul is working to enable the elect people self consciously to see what that means. And so he begins by saying that: “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.”
