The Aroma of Christ
Displeasing some people because of the gospel of Christ that we preach by our words and our deeds is inevitable. It only makes sense for us to be like Paul – not bother to peddle / corrupt the word of God for human profit / pleasures. After all, we gain nothing from the accolades of men whilst destroying the ministry of God’s word.
Moreover if we should seek an extra consolation, it should be that though we have become a smell of death to some. We have also become a fragrance of life to some others.
So here’s the best news, to God, we are the aroma of Christ!
…‘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…’ (Vs 15 & 16. NIV)
Thank You dear Lord for making us the aroma of Christ. Help us to remain a sweet smelling savour unto You, no matter the storm that life brings our way, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
