2 Corinthians 5:16-21

The Ministry of Reconciliation

16 From now on, then, we do not knowa anyone in a purely human way.b Even if we have knownc Christ in a purely human way,d yet now we no longer knowe Him like that.
17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new thingsf have come.
18 Now everything is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:
19 that is, in Christ, God was reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed the message of reconciliation to us.
20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ; certain that God is appealing through us, we plead on Christ's behalf, "Be reconciled to God."
21 He made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
