This paragraph serves to explain what is meant by "Be transformed" in v. 2. This transformation is expressed in the context of Christian community. Paul's main point in this paragraph is v. 3, "think with sober judgment." The reason why this sort of transformed thinking is so crucial is that we are different members of one body (vv. 4-5), and so the various manifestations of God's grace in individuals' giftings are to be used with a gracious spirit for the edification of the body.

For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you
μὴ ὑπερφρονεῖν παρ' ὃ δεῖ φρονεῖν
not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think,

but to think with sober judgment,

each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.
