14 For the love of Christ (A)controls us, because we have concluded this: that (B)one has died for all, therefore all have died; 15 and he died for all, (C)that those who live might no longer live for themselves but (D)for him who for their sake died and was raised.

16 From now on, therefore, (E)we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is (F)in Christ, he is (G)a new creation.[a] (H)The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18 All this is from God, (I)who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us (J)the ministry of reconciliation; 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling[b] the world to himself, (K)not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us (L)the message of reconciliation.
