“A Sweet Perfume”
I am grateful that God always makes it possible for Christ to lead us to victory. God also helps us spread the knowledge about Christ everywhere, and this knowledge is like the smell of perfume. In fact, God thinks of us as a perfume that brings Christ to everyone. For people who are being saved, this perfume has a sweet smell and leads them to a better life. But for people who are lost, it has a bad smell and leads them to a horrible death.--------2 Corinthians 2:14-16
As a Child of the Living God, we are the instruments that He will use to spread the knowledge about Christ and the GOOD NEWS, that Jesus SAVES. This GOOD NEWS is like the fragrance of perfume. The Apostle Paul says that God thinks of us, His Children, as a perfume that brings Christ to EVERYONE.
For those who are being SAVED, this perfume of GOOD NEWS has a SWEET smell and leads them to a better life---the HOPE of Heaven. But for those who are LOST, this perfume has a BAD smell and leads them to a horrible death----an eternity in Hell.
For the most part, the lost doesn’t want to hear the GOOD NEWS, because they would come under conviction and would be forced to make a crucial decision concerning their eternal destination. So when they are subjected to the KNOWLEDGE of CHRIST, the smell of the perfume, becomes a BAD smell and they tend to flee from it, and they end up experiencing a horrible death, because of their REJECTION of the KNOWLEDGE of CHRIST.
We who are the PERFUME, need to constantly let the FRAGRANCE of the KNOWLEDGE of CHRIST, permeate every place we go. We never know who may be around us that would be drawn by the fragrance, to a better life, by ACCEPTING God’s free gift of the fragrant perfume, the knowledge of Jesus Christ, the GOOD NEWS, and the SALVATION of their SOUL.
If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are one who will experience the BAD smell and be led to a horrible death----Hell. You can change your situation NOW, by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and become the sweet smell of perfume to someone searching for the GOOD NEWS. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
