2 Corinthians 5

Almighty Creator, Sustainer and Redeemer of all of life:

By our sin we forfeit life,
we show how little we value,
what poor use we make of it.

Now, through the gift of faith, we see
that undeserved gift we have in Christ:
a new creation!

The old has passed away!
The new has come!

In Christ we have been reconciled to God.
We do not fear condemnation or death.
We rejoice because you no longer count our trespasses against us.

You announce good news for all people, and the whole world:
God, you are reconciling the world to yourself!

Thank you Jesus, for in the cross you took our sin on yourself,
So in you, Jesus, we have become the righteousness of God.

Thanksgiving, praise and glory to You!

Amen.
