"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." 2 Cor. 2:14-15
Are you an aroma of Christ? Can people you know tell that you have been sitting at the Master's feet? When you become a Christian, being an aroma of Christ doesn't automatically happen. You can't fake it. Every time, you'll be found out. That's the unique thing about an aroma. Either you have it or you don't. You can only get it one way-by absorbing it from the source. Our source is Jesus Christ! We are to abide in Christ so that we begin to be transformed into His image. Then we begin to look like Him, sound like Him and even "smell" like Him. Yes, we will be imperfect; we will make mistakes; we will fail; we may even go through times in which we don't feel very close to God. But we can rest assured that if we continue to sit at His feet, He is able to bring glory to His name through us wherever we are-whether in our marriage, with our kids, among non-believers, and in the church. He can receive glory if we are to Him an aroma of Christ-filled with the knowledge of Him.
