A Sweet Fragrance
2 Corinthians 2:14-15
But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of Him. For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.
I see the signs of Christmas everywhere, the lights, the music, the Christmas coffee blends buy generic lasix. When I think of Christmas, I think of my Grandma, her fragrance, I cannot think of a time when we didn’t spend Christmas with her. She is my spiritual mentor, and when I read this verse, and think of the aroma of Christ I think of her.
The Apostle Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians that ‘we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing’. Stop and think for a moment what that means. Stop and think for a moment all the different aromas in your life that when you smell them it immediately brings good feelings and memories or those that may bring not so good feelings and memories. Now remember that Christ is the beloved Son of God with whom He is well pleased. When we accept the Gospel of Grace, our lives become the ‘aroma of Christ’ to God as we live our lives in the world! As I think of how hard it must have been to not notice my grandmother at Christmas time, I can’t help but realize what a blessing it is to be ‘the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing’. It helps me to get the head knowledge as well as the heart knowledge that Christ is with me always.
