Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.
1 Peter 2:22–24
He committed no sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth. When he was reviled, he did not revile in return; when he suffered, he did not threaten, but continued entrusting himself to him who judges justly. He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.

Read 2 Corinthians 5:14-21. In verses14-15, what is Paul’s conclusion?
Verse 16 begins, “from now on, therefore”. Paul is about to explain the implications of the conclusion from verses 14-15. What are those implications?
Verse 18 begins, “All this is from God”. Paul is referring to the redeeming work of new creation, which is result of Christ’s death and resurrection. Look for the two places in verses 18-19 where Paul makes explicit that new creation and reconciliation is “through Christ” and “in Christ”. How does the fact that “all this is from God” transform how we walk as a church together?
Verse 21 is a simple and beautiful statement of the gospel. Spend the remainder of your time sharing what you see in this verse. Then consider how you can share the gospel it proclaims with those around you as a minister of reconciliation.
