Discussion for 2 Corinthians 5

    Vs. 20 - being an ambassador for Christ (God) entails taking ONLY the Word of God to souls - with no 'outside' writings added. His Word, the KJV Bible, is all He has given us.
  • Irene123
    Vs. 18-19; through His death Jesus provided reconciliation for both Jew and Gentile. When the Jews and Gentile are reconciled to God, they will be reconciled to one another. What peace treaties and piece conferences cannot do - the blood of Jesus can.

    We will walk by Faith and Not by Sight. Jesus was given to us from our Father in Heaven with his Words . We have to believe that Jesus is the Son of the Living God who came in flesh. His words are given to us not to figure out but to BELIEVE IN HIS WORDS AND OBEY THEM . Thru God's words we might be made the righteousness thru Jesus Amen
  • Librarygal143
    I have faith, God. Hallelujah, thank you Jesus.
  • BSP
    We must live our lives in a way that shows that we have faith. It takes faith to truly believe in all of God's promises and to live in a way that shows we have that faith.
