2 Corinthians 5:11-21 "Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord,..." KJV - Online Bible Study Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest untoGod; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences. 12 For we commend not ourselvesagain unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat toanswer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart. 13 For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober , it is for your cause. 14 For the love of Christ constrainethus; because we thus judge , that if one died for all, then were all dead : 15 And that he died for all,that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them,and rose again . 16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we haveknown Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 17 Therefore if any manbe in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away ; behold , all things are becomenew. 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hathgiven to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the worldunto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word ofreconciliation. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you byus: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21 For he hath made him to be sin forus, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
