2 Corinthians 2:15

“For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.

Imagine walking down the street on a warm spring day. The birds are singing and the sun shining through the trees makes dappled shadows on the sidewalk. Your mind is preoccupied with the joy of the day when suddenly everything changes.

There is an enticing aroma wafting across the street that draws you to a small shop with a familiar sign over the door — FRESH BAKED BREAD! You laugh to yourself, “As if anyone would have to tell you it is fresh bread!” That wonderful aroma by itself provided enough of an announcement.

You cross the street and peek through the window of the shop and see row after row of freshly baked bread on the counter.  Having great will power you turn and walk away.  RIGHT!

As we read today’s Scripture we are told that we are to be the aroma of Christ to those around us. In other words, we are to draw people to Christ.

What fragrant aroma of Christ do people sense when they are around you? Do you think they will want to “taste and see that the Lord is good?”   Will they think of you when they desire spiritual counsel?

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
