In His Word Wednesday: 2 Corinthians 2:15

2 Corinthians 2:15
For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.

Have you ever thought about your sense of smell. All it takes is a sniff to determine what it is we are smelling. If I covered your eyes and put a cantelope in front of you, you would know it's a cantelope because the smell. A cantelope smells like a cantelope, just as an apple smells like an apple. Get where I'm going?

Anyway, the above verse states we are the fragrance of Christ. For believers Christ lives in you, therefore you have the fragrance of Christ. We are among other believers and also nonbelievers. It goes on in verse 16 about how others will handle our aroma. As you live your daily life in Christ, some will hate you because of your Christ-like aroma, while others will want to know how they can get the same scent you have. How we live our daily life in front of others is very important.

So I ask you, what fragrance are you leaving behind?
