Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:3 - inasmuch as we, having put it on, will not be found naked.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:4 - For indeed while we are in this tent, we groan, being burdened, because we do not want to be unclothed but to be clothed, so that what is mortal will be swallowed up by life.

Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:7 - for we walk by faith, not by [fn]sight
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:8 - we are of good courage and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.

So then, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, but we [fn]have been made manifest to God; and I hope that we [fn]have been made manifest also in your consciences.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:12 - We are not again commending ourselves to you but are giving you an opportunity to boast of us, so that you will have an answer for those who boast in appearance and not in heart.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:13 - For if we [fn]are out of our mind, it is for God, or if we are of right mind, it is for you.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:14 - For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:16 -

Therefore from now on we recognize no one [fn]according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ [fn]according to the flesh, yet now we know Him in this way no longer.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:17 - Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:18 - Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:19 - namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their transgressions against them, and [fn]He has [fn]committed to us the word of reconciliation.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 5:20 -

So then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as God is pleading through us. We beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
