2 Corinthians 5:19-20 The Passion Translation (TPT)

19 In other words, it was through the Anointed One that God was shepherding the world,[a] not even keeping records of their transgressions, and he has entrusted to us the ministry of opening the door of reconciliation to God.[b] 20 We are ambassadors[c] of the Anointed One who carry the message of Christ to the world, as though God were tenderly pleading[d] with them directly through our lips. So we tenderly plead with you on Christ’s behalf, “Turn back to God and be reconciled to him.”
