God Sniffs

 

God Snifs

 

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”:

  • Patience
  • Self-Control
  • Gentleness
  • Peace
  • Faithfulness
  • Happiness
  • Joy
  • Kindness

Isn’t that fragrance GREAT?….

    Indeed Pastor it’s a great fragrance in which one wants to be smell of and have with them all the time. It’s all down to me to choose which fragrance I want; the good or the bad. He gave us all a choice to choose. And just how one as a choice to shower or not, we also have a choice of the fragrance we want. Having the sweet aroma is the one that I want to keep and not to smell stink.
    Thank you Pastor for sharing, god bless.

    It is not the way we look on the outside or the way anyone else sees us on the outside but what matters is what God sees in us on the inside. Our character, the way be behave. Also if we smell good on the inside we will be good on the outside too.
    But looking good on the outside doesn’t always mean we are good on the inside, anyone can pretend… But for how long can someone pretend. There’s nothing hidden which cannot be revealed so it’s best to be who you are and fight to change. Thank you pastor. This really helped me a lot. I know what I’m going to change in my life
