2 Corinthians 5:14-21

RSVA 14 For the love of Christ controls us, because we are convinced that one has died for all; therefore all have died. NIV 14 For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. RSVA 15 And he died for all, that those who live might live no longer for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised. NIV 15 And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. RSVA 16 From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view; even though we once regarded Christ from a human point of view, we regard him thus no longer. NIV 16 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. RSVA 17 Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come. NIV 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! RSVA 18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; NIV 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: RSVA 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. NIV 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. RSVA 20 So we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We beseech you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. NIV 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. RSVA 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. NIV 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
