Because of this decision

we don’t evaluate people

by what they have

or how they look.

 

We looked at the Messiah that way once and got it all wrong, as you know.

 

We certainly don’t look at him that way anymore.

Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new.

The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it!

All this comes from the God

who settled the relationship between us and him,

and then called us to settle our relationships with each other.

 

God put the world square with himself

through the Messiah,

giving the world a fresh start

by offering forgiveness of sins.

God has given us the task of telling everyone what he is doing. We’re Christ’s representatives. God uses us to persuade men and women to drop their differences and enter into God’s work of making things right between them.

We’re speaking for Christ himself now:

Become friends with God; he’s already a friend with you.
2 Corinthians 5:17 MSG
