Verse 19 describes the ministry of reconciliation as proclaiming “the message of reconciliation”. The message we are to share with the world is this “Be reconciled to God” ( verse 20). We are to tell people of the wonderful opportunity they have to be made right with God through Jesus. We implore them to believe in Jesus Christ. Sins do not count against those who are reconciled to God through Christ, because “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God” (Verse 21).
