If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!
All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation:
In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting our trespasses against us, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us.
So we are ambassadors for Christ:
For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
—from 2 Corinthians 5:16-21
