Responsive Reading from 2 Corinthians 5

Leader: If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
ALL: All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.

Leader: In Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.
ALL: Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us.

Leader: For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin,
ALL: so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”
