E. Making It Their Aim to Please the Lord by Living to Him
9 Therefore also we are 1determined, whether 2at home or abroad, to gain the honor of being awell pleasing to Him.
10 1For we must all be amanifested before the 2bjudgment seat of Christ, that each one may 3creceive the things done 4through the body according to what he has practiced, whether good or 5bad.
11 1Knowing therefore the 2afear of the Lord, we 3persuade men, but we are made manifest to God; yet I hope that we are made manifest also in your bconsciences.
12 We are not again acommending ourselves to you, but so speak in order to give you an opportunity to bboast on our behalf, that you may 1have an answer for those who are cboasting in doutward 2appearance and not in 3eheart.
13 For whether we were 1abeside ourselves, it was to God; or whether we are 2bsober-minded, it is cfor you.
14 For the 1alove of Christ 2constrains us because we 3have judged this, that 4bOne died for all, 5therefore call died;
15 And He adied for all that those who blive may 1no longer live to themselves but 2cto Him who died for them and has been raised.
