When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, Having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross.
Living As Dead
Being Made Alive
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come, the old has gone, the new is here!
The Obstacles of the Law
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
Ambassadors of Life
2 Corinthians 5:18-20
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.
