Hello Amazing One,
It’s the start of another working week; it’ll be one of supernatural victories for you and yours in Jesus name.
Reading through Our Daily Bread devotional of Saturday 17th July, The Holy Spirit helped me understand 2 Corinthians 2:14-17 in an entirely different light. The passion translation states, “God always makes his grace visible in Christ, who includes us as partners of his endless triumph. Through our yielded lives he spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere we go. We have become the unmistakable aroma of the victory of the Anointed One to God—a perfume of life to those being saved and the odor of death to those who are perishing. The unbelievers smell a deadly stench that leads to death, but believers smell the life-giving aroma that leads to abundant life. And who of us can rise to this challenge? For unlike so many, we are not peddlers of God’s Word who water down the message. We are those sent from God with pure motives, who speak in the sight of God from our union with Christ.”
Just like we wear perfumes that others can perceive and sometimes can identify what brand we’re wearing, so it is with us as believers. We are a perfume of life to those that are being saved, and the odor of death to those who are perishing.
God has designed our lives to be a fragrance of God’s knowledge. Wherever we go, people should be able to perceive that unmistakable aroma of Christ through us. May God help us live up to His expectations of us in Jesus name.
God’s blessings always
