2 Corinthians 5:9-19 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
9 Therefore we also have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be 1pleasing to Him. 10 For we must all appear before 2the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for ahis deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 11 Therefore, knowing the 3fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we are made manifest to God; and I hope that we are 4made manifest also in your consciences. 12 We are not 5again commending ourselves to you but are giving you an 6occasion 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 bare 7beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are of sound mind, it is for you. 14 For the love of Christ 8controls us, having concluded this, that 9one died for all, therefore all died; 15 and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer 10live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf. 16 Therefore from now on we recognize no one c11according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ daccording to the flesh, yet now we know Him in this way no longer. 17 Therefore if anyone is 12in Christ, ehe is 13a new creature; 14the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 18 Now 15all these things are from God, 16who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the 17ministry of reconciliation, 19 namely, that 18God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, 19not counting their trespasses against them, and fHe has gcommitted to us the word of reconciliation.
