17 So if anyone is a new creature in Christ, what is old has passed away. Behold, all things have been made new.
18 But all is of God, who has reconciled us to himself through Christ, and who has given us the ministry of reconciliation.
19 For certainly God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, not charging them with their sins. And he has placed in us the Word of reconciliation.
20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, so that God is exhorting through us. We beseech you for Christ: be reconciled to God.
21 For God made him who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the justice of God in him.
