How Do You Smell?

Yesterday at our Lead Team meeting our worship pastor Robbie Cheuvront led the devotional time. He led us to 2 Corinthians 2:14-16 where we discussed Paul's charge to be the aroma of Christ. He says,

"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. To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life."

This passage should be a daily reminder that wherever we go, we are being spread everywhere like an aroma by God to those around us. Wherever you go, whoever you encounter, God is spreading the aroma of Christ through you. Are you allowing God to spread the aroma of Christ through your life? If you are willing, God will do the spreading, we simply must surrender to allow Him. I think the imagery of the aroma of Christ is fascinating. To some people our lives will be a fragrance that signifies life, hope, and love. For others we will be the aroma of death, because our lives will serve as a mirror for everything theirs is not.

How do you smell today?
