2 Corinthians 5:7-17 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
7 for 1we walk by faith, not by asight - 8 we are of good courage, I say, and 2prefer rather to be absent from the body and 3to be at home with the Lord. 9 Therefore we also have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be 4pleasing to Him. 10 For we must all appear before 5the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for bhis deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 11 Therefore, knowing the 6fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest to God; and I hope that we are 7made manifest also in your consciences. 12 We are not 8again commending ourselves to you but are giving you an 9occasion 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 care 10beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are of sound mind, it is for you. 14 For the love of Christ 11controls us, having concluded this, that 12one died for all, therefore all died; 15 and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer 13live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf. 16 Therefore from now on we recognize no one d14according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ eaccording to the flesh, yet now we know Him in this way no longer. 17 Therefore if anyone is 15in Christ, fhe is 16a new creature; 17the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
