What is your favorite aroma? Is it fresh bread straight from the oven? Or better yet cinnamon rolls? Or it could be the smell of the grill cooking in the back yard. For many it is the smell of fresh flowers, perhaps fresh roses. A sweet aroma is very inviting. It invites us to enjoy
The apostle Paul says that believers are "the sweet aroma of Christ to those who are being saved." What does that mean? When we engage with people we may be the presence of Christ in their lives. That could sound presumptuous. The audacity is that God choses to work through mere human beings like us!
My prayer is that somehow Christ will be evident in spite of my humanity.
"For we are the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved...And who is equal to such a task?...in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, like men sent from God."
2 Corinthians 2: 15, 17
