“And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;”
King James Version (KJV)
5:18 And all these new things are from God, considered under this very notion, as reconciling us - The world, #2Co 5:19|, to himself.
2Co 5:18 And all things [are] of God. These have all come from God through the gospel. Who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ. Before we were at variance with God, and disobedient. Through Christ we have been brought to love God, to love his will, and hence to obey him. We have been changed, are new creatures. The ministry of reconciliation. The gospel, the object of which is to transform men, and to bring them to peace with God.
