As we remember the suffering of our Savior this week and celebrate His glorious victory over death, I found these various verses from 2 Corinthians chapters 5-8 an especially impactful description of the gospel.
"God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself."
"He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves but for Him who died for them and rose again."
"For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him"
"Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us; we implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God."
"...therefore we persuade men, For the love of Christ compels us."
"For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad."
"Behold, now is the day of salvation"
"Come out from among them and be separate says the Lord. And I will receive you. I will be a Father to you and you shall be my sons and daughters."
"For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation.
"Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away, behold all things have become new."
Celebrating the salvation He made possible!
Happy Resurrection Day!
