What does 2 Corinthians 5:15 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Corinthians 5:15

And that he died for all, that they which live
The end of Christ's dying for men was that they might live; live, in a legal sense, live a life of justification; and that they which live in such a sense,

should not henceforth live unto themselves:
to their own lusts, and after their own wills, to either sinful self, or righteous self:

but unto him which died for them, and rose again;
that is, for them, for their justification; for all those for whom Christ died, for them he rose again; and who were justified, acquitted, and discharged when he was; which cannot be said of all mankind; and which is an obligation on such persons to live to Christ, to ascribe the whole of their salvation to him, and to make his glory the end of all their actions. Some copies read, "which died for them all".
