2 Cor 5:13-17

13 For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. 14 For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; 15 and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.

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.[b] The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

One response to “2 Cor 5:13-17

  1. The principle seems fair, and simple. I was dead and a slave. Christ rescued me and gave me life. I owe Him my life, my allegiance, and my service. I should no longer live for me but for Him.

    Easier to say than to do. Now that I have freedom I want to maximize my joy and pleasure and I shun the fact that I owe my life to another.
