Aroma

Meg

"But thanks be to God, who always puts us on display in Christ and through us spreads the aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. For to God we are the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To some we are an aroma of death leading to death, but to others, an aroma of life leading to life. And who is competent for this?"  (2 Corinthians 2:14-16, HCSB).

 

I love the language used here. We are the fragrance of Christ. He moves through us, ministering to others through us, each and every day. 

Others know about Christ because of us. Because we live our days serving Him and sharing His love with others. 

It's all Him. It really has nothing to do with us. It is Him moving, Him reaching hearts. Him ministering through us.

The first use of "aroma," or "savour" in the KJV, is the Greek word euōdia

 

  • a sweet smell, fragrance
  • a think well pleasing to God
  • a sweet odour, spoken of the smell of sacrifices and obligations, agreeably to the ancient notion that God smells and is pleased with the odour of sacrifices

 

 

The other mentions of aroma/fragrance are from the word osmē, which just means a smell, odour 
To some, we bring sweet smells of worship, of grace, of fellowship with Jesus. To some, it's the smell of His rejection. It's sad of think of, and harsh, but some will just chose not to follow Him. I'm happy it's not our place to decide. That we can keep on sharing Christ's love right up to the end. Only God knows their hearts. Only God knows just what fragrance they breathe in.
But on a positive note, did you know that you are a wonderful, cherished fragrance? That God is well pleased with your life of worship?
Today I'm heading to The Influence Conference, to worship with a beautiful fellowship of believers. Please pray for me while I'm there? I'm so excited to meet like minded woman who understand that beautiful influence they each have in their own circles. I'm looking forward to the new friends I'll meet, and worshiping with all of these great ladies! I can't wait to share with you all that I learn.
