We are a new creation reconnected to God – 2 Corinthians 5:15-21
2 Corinthians 5:15-21
15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not
henceforth (no longer) live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
16 Wherefore henceforth (from now) know we no
man (one) after the flesh (according to the old nature): yea, though (even if) we have known Christ after the flesh (according to the old nature), yet now henceforth know we him no more (no longer).
17 Therefore if any man be in (resting within) Christ (the messiah),
he is (there is) a new creature(creation): old things (the ancient things) are passed away; behold, all things (they) are become new (freshly new, new bottle).
18 And all things (as a whole) are of God, who
hath reconciled (reconnected) us to himself by Jesus Christ (the messiah), and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation (the reconnection);
19 To wit, that God was in (resting within) Christ (the messiah), reconciling (reconnecting) the world (kosmos: the arrangement)
unto himself, not imputing (counting) their trespasses (the falling aside) unto them; and hath committed unto (placed in) us the word (logos: the spoken word as connected to the inner thoughts) of reconciliation (reconnection).
20 Now then we are ambassadors (to be an elder, take precedence) for Christ (the messiah), as though God did beseech you (is beseeching) by us: we pray you in Christ’s (the messiah) stead, be ye reconciled to God.
For He hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no (not) sin; that we might be (become) made the righteousness of God in him.
