Bible: 2 Corinthians 5:17-21
5:17 So then, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; what is old has passed away 1 – look, what is new 2 has come! 3 5:18 And all these things are from God who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and who has given us the ministry of reconciliation. 5:19 In other words, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting people’s trespasses against them, and he has given us 4 the message of reconciliation. 5:20 Therefore we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making His plea 5 through us. We plead with you 6 on Christ’s behalf, “Be reconciled to God!” 5:21 God 7 made the one who did not know sin 8 to be sin for us, so that in him 9 we would become the righteousness of God.
