“For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing,” (2 Corinthians 2:15).
Have you ever walked into a place where someone was cooking fish? The aroma of the fish most likely struck you immediately. Your response to the fish smell was either positive because you like fish, or negative because you do not like fish. Note: It did not matter if you liked fish or not, you still smelled it. Being a fish, it had no choice but to give off the aroma of fish regardless if those present liked it or not.
Being a Christian is, in a way, like that fish. Wherever Christians go, they leave a fragrance behind. There are some who like the fragrance and others who hate it. To those who reject the Lord, the fragrance will be loathsome…but to those who respond to the Lord, or who have already responded, the fragrance will be a pleasant one.
“To one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life,” (2 Corinthians 2:16).
There is no time like the present to leave the aroma of Christ wherever we go! May your life be used during these days to bring hope to others.
