19 that is, God was in Christ reconciling[a] the world to himself,[b] not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 20 So we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We beseech you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 21 For our sake he made him to be sin[c] who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
