we are called to see people differently than we have ever seen them before. in 2 corinthians 5:16 Paul says that we no longer know people in a purely human way. his point is that we have been changed by our relationship to Jesus, and this change must cause us to see people differently. we have been reconciled to Jesus, everyone we meet needs to be reconciled to Jesus.
we who know Christ must see everyone in 1 of 2 groups. either they know Jesus, or they don’t. verse 15 says that Jesus died for all so that we would not live for ourselves any longer. don’t live for your desires, your passions, and your agendas. instead, live for Jesus. live to bring people to Jesus. may people see something different in you and be led to Jesus.
