“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.To the one, we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life.”2 Corinthians 2:14-16a
Just think! Everywhere we go we give off the aroma of Christ Jesus who helps us to be victorious (to triumph) in every situation we find ourselves in. At least, we should be. We all know the saying, “The only Jesus people may ever see is us, His followers.”
I happen to be one of the many people in this world who are sensitive to fragrances. If I want to purchase a new product that would be applied to my skin, I look at the list of ingredients to see if the word “fragrance” is there. If I should accidentally use one that has fragrance in it, my skin will react with terrible itching, and I sometimes develop a headache. Consequently, I do not use or wear any of those products.
But there is one fragrance I can wear without any fear of an uncomfortable reaction. The one called “Jesus.” I will not “smell” very good to those who don’t want to hear about Him. But I will “smell” very sweet to those who are believing on Him for salvation.
I want to give off the aroma of life leading to life. Everyday. Everywhere. I know you do, as well.
Be blessed today.
