Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,1 he is a new creation;2 the old has gone, the new has come!318
All this is from God,4 who reconciled us to himself through Christ5 and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:
that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them.6 And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
We are therefore Christ's ambassadors,7 as though God were making his appeal through us.8 We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God.921
God made him who had no sin10 to be sina for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.11
