2 Corinthians 5:12-21 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
12 We are not 1again commending ourselves to you but are giving you an 2occasion to be proud of us, so that you will have an answer for those who take pride in appearance and not in heart. 13 For if we aare 3beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are of sound mind, it is for you. 14 For the love of Christ 4controls us, having concluded this, that 5one died for all, therefore all died; 15 and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer 6live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf. 16 Therefore from now on we recognize no one b7according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ caccording to the flesh, yet now we know Him in this way no longer. 17 Therefore if anyone is 8in Christ, dhe is 9a new creature; 10the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 18 Now 11all these things are from God, 12who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the 13ministry of reconciliation, 19 namely, that 14God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, 15not counting their trespasses against them, and eHe has fcommitted to us the word of reconciliation. 20 Therefore, we are 16ambassadors for Christ, 17as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be 18reconciled to God. 21 He made Him who 19knew no sin to be 20sin on our behalf, so that we might become the 21righteousness of God in Him.
