So far in our journey through 2 Corinthians 5 we have found deep and lasting motivation from two sources. Firstly the eternal hope of perfection that God has for our future and secondly the lavish love that He has for us right now. But both of these are things that God has done for us… this week we investigate something that God has done for other people, for people who don’t know Him, something that should give us a radical drive to passionately pursue Christ with all we have.
2 Corinthians 5:18-21
All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; 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. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
