Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old is gone, the new has come! 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 men’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. God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us so that in Him we might be the righteousness of God.
What images come to your mind as you read this passage? I see butterflies and an ambassador’s sash with medals.
