Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 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. 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.
2 Corinthians 5:17-20
1.) Paul refers to us as “Christ’s Ambassadors”. How well are you fulfilling your commission as Christ’s ambassador?
2.) Our sins were laid on Christ at His crucifixion, and His righteousness is given to us at our conversion. In your opinion, is this a fair trade?
3.) In verse 19, what do we commonly call the “wonderful message” Paul was talking about?
