"What we see is that anyone united with Jesus gets a fresh start, is created new. The old has gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it! All this comes from the God who settled the relationship between us and Him, and then called us to settle our relationships with each other. God put the world square with Himself through Jesus Christ, giving the world a fresh start by offering forgiveness of sins."
"God has given us the task of telling everyone what He is doing. We're Christ's representatives. God uses us to persuade men and women to drop their differences and enter into God's work of making things right between them." 2 Corinthinas 5:17-19 (Msg)
"We are therefore, Christ's Ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: be reconciled to God!" 2 Corinthians 5:20 (NIV)
