“The Aroma of Christ”
For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. To the one we are an aroma that brings death; to the other, an aroma that brings life. And who is equal to such a task? 2 Corinthians 2: 15, 16
When we are planning to go off somewhere, one of the things most of us do is to want to have a PLEASING FRAGRANCE about us. So we spray or dab a little bit of FRAGRANCE on us. To some the FRAGRANCE is PLEASING and to others, it may NOT have a PLEASING AROMA about it.
Our offering to God is the PLEASING AROMA of Christ, the TRUE BELIEVER is that PLEASING AROMA. We are the PLEASING AROMA among those who are being saved and those who are being lost. To those who are PERISHING, this PLEASING AROMA brings the STENCH of DEATH. Many will REJECT Christ and spend an ETERNITY in Hell, which is a SPIRITUAL DEATH. Those who are being saved are attracted to the Savior for the SALVATION of their souls, through the PLEASING AROMA of CHRIST, the WITNESS of the TRUE BELIEVER. They will receive ETERNAL LIFE in Heaven.
Who is equal to the task? Only God can give ETERNAL LIFE, and He has accomplished it by using Jesus Christ, and His PLEASING AROMA. Are you the AROMA of CHRIST? Have you given your HEART and LIFE to God? If your answer is “NO”, then you are LOST and PERISHING and headed for a SPIRITUAL DEATH and an ETERNITY in HELL, unless you TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, 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, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and ETERNAL LIFE in Heaven, and become the PLEASING AROMA of CHRIST. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
