For the love of Christ constrains us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
And that he died for all, that they which live should not from now on live to themselves, but to him which died for them, and rose again.
2 Cor. 5:14,15
And all things are of God, who has reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, not imputing their trespasses to them; and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’ stead, be you reconciled to God.
2 Cor. 5:18-20
