For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. —2 Corinthians 2:15
Some scents are unforgettable. They bring an emotional response and pleasant memory of people we loved.
Memories, imagination, old sentiments, and associations are more readily reached through the sense of smell.
So, what if our lives were a fragrance that attracted people to God?
2 Corinthians 2:15 says that “we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.”
Our fragrance is pleasing to God, but it also attracts others to Him or repels them.
We who understand the sacrifice of Jesus have the opportunity to be the fragrance of Christ.
We can be a reminder of the Lord Jesus Christ to others.
The sweet scent of the likeness of Christ can be an irresistible pull toward the Savior.
When we walk with God, we leave behind a sweet fragrance that can inspire others to follow.
Certainly, the gospel has a sweet spiritual aroma for those who believe.
