Sermon

Entrusted with a Message and Ministry

A Huge Mistake (2 Corinthians 5:16-17) 16 From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer.17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. Christ reconciled us to God (2 Corinthians 5:17, 18a, 19a, 21)

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18a All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself 19b and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

God trusts you (2 Corinthians 5:18b, 19b, 20) 18b and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;19b and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
