2 Corinthians 5.6-10(11-13)14-17

Brothers and sisters, 6we are always confident; even though we know thawhile we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord 7for we walk bfaith, not by sight. 8Yes, we do have confidence, and we would rather be awafrom the body and at home with the Lord. 9So whether we are at home or away, wmake it our aim to please him. 10For all of us must appear before the judgemenseat of Christ, so that each may receive recompense for what has been done ithe body, whether good or evil.11Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we try to persuade others; but wourselves are well known to God, and I hope that we are also well known to youconsciences. 12We are not commending ourselves to you again, but giving you aopportunity to boast about us, so that you may be able to answer those whboast in outward appearance and not in the heart. 13For if we are besidourselves, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. 14Thlove of Christ urges us on, because we are convinced that one has died for alltherefore all have died. 15And he died for all, so that those who live mighlive no longer for themselves, but for him who died and was raised for them.16From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view; evethough we once knew Christ from a human point of view, we know him no longer ithat way. 17So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything olhas passed away; see, everything has become new!

Dissing the D-word

Angela Tilby: Discipleship as a convenient term to ramp up the commitment of the laity sounds alien to Anglican instincts, and it is. I hope Synod members are gearing up for creative revolt  Read More
