Guess what you are?
Hope you're all doing super well this week! Before you look further down this post, did you notice that there isn't a verse attached to the picture above? Reason being - I wanted you to try to guess, by just the collage of pictures, what today's "You are" is!! What do all of those things have in common with you? Did ya get it?! :O) :O) :O) Well, the answer is below!
~Now that's what I'm talking about!!!! lol! I love gooooood smelling
things! Just looking at these pictures makes me want to sniff the screen! lol lol....ok so maybe not really! ;o) But in all seriousness - You ARE a sweet smelling savor to God! Let's hear
about that truth in His words!~
"14 But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. 15 For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, 16 to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? 17 For we are not, like so many, peddlers of God's word, but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ!" ~II Cor. 2:14-17
"Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. 2 And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God!" ~Eph. 5:2
All throughout Scripture there's a theme that where it talks about a sweet savour, it's talking about sacrifice. God has called us to be living sacrifices unto Him in our everyday "littles" and "bigs" and when we live in surrender - boy, O, boy do our lives ever radiate a sweet savor! Ever been at a store and someone walks by and "mmmmm" you get a "whiff" of some amazing perfume or cologne - lol! That's normally a pleasant experience! lol! Well, I don't know about you - but I sure want to be God's "mmmmmm" and I always, in everything, want to give off the amazing "whifs"/sweet smelling savors of His goodness to Him and to all those around me! I'm so grateful for Christ and His sacrifice to make it possible!
May you be sensitive in surrender and sacrifice and may your righteous fragrance, through Christ, be stronger and sweeter than ever!!!!!!
