All of us have a natural odour from the body, some stronger than others. Perspiration occurs when there’s exercise of the body, which is natural in our busy days. That’s why we have to shower and use deodorant. Everybody want’s to be clean and have a good fragrance, that’s why we like to use perfume.
Now let me speak about a different kind of fragrance or smell. It’s the spiritual fragrance. One can be smelling really nice on the outside however it can be stinking on the inside. What’s inside, our character, behaviour, words, thoughts can smell really bad at God’s “nose”!..
Do you know that God Sniffs?
When the person holds a grudge, lies, gossips, leaves in promiscuity, is proud, selfish, greedy, swears words, impatient, etc… then the aroma coming out of us isn’t good!.. The fragrance stinks and end up setting us apart from God. That’s what happens when you are around with someone that is stinking!…You just can stick around that much time!..You will avoid or even reject to be around that person.
So the question is: What is the aroma we have?
2 Corinthians 2:15-16
15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life.
The fragrance of Christ is the Holy Spirit in us!…This fragrance is what makes us to be attractive!…Look how attractive that aroma is!…
Here are the components of this “Spiritual fragrance”:
Isn’t that fragrance GREAT?….
