A Sweet Fragrance

2 Corinthians 2:14—A Sweet FragranceIMG_3495[1]

As soon as I opened the door, I knew what my husband had been doing while I was running errands. I took a deep breath and could taste the aroma filling our house. His sweet potato pineapple bread cooled on our kitchen counter. The bread’s distinct fragrance had imprinted itself in my mind and my taste buds. It left its knowledge in every room.

This Week’s Scripture:

“But thanks be to God,

who always leads us in His triumph in Christ,

and manifests through us

the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him

in every place.”

2 Corinthians 2:14(NASB)

Wherever we go the sweet aroma of our being with Christ follows us. As we give ourselves to Him, our words leave others with a fragrance they can taste. Our lives carry His imprint leaving the knowledge of Him in everyplace.

For Thought: What is Christ’s imprint on His followers’ lives? What is the sweet fragrance?

Our Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for giving us victory over this world through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, your Son. May we bear a true image of His love and grace wherever we go that others may come to know Him. Thank you, Jesus.
