2 Corinthians 5:19-21 Worldwide English (New Testament) (WE)
19 We are not looking at things that can be seen, but at things that cannot be seen. The things which can be seen last only a little while. But the things which cannot be seen last for ever.
20 So we are messengers for Christ. God is using us to call people. So we are standing here for Christ and begging people, `Come back to God!'
21 Christ did no wrong thing. But for our sake God put the blame for our wrong ways on Christ. So now God sees us as good, because we are in Christ.
