Bible Challenge – 2 Corinthians 2

February 8, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

“Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. But this fragrance is perceived differently by those who are being saved and by those who are perishing.” v. 15 (NLT)

We’ve all had encounters with people who smell good and unfortunately people who smell bad.  In fact, we are so self-conscious about this that we try our best to smell the best we can.  However, this same desire to smell good for others, doesn’t transfer to us having a good aroma to God.  In fact, what may send a beautiful aroma towards Heaven, may be a stench in the nostrils of friends, family, or strangers. It causes us to evaluate who we will try to live for!  Our life is either pleasing to God, or unpleasing to Him. When we live by the power of the Holy Spirit, being like Christ in word and action, it pleases the Father in Heaven! But when we live in our own power, trying to please ourselves or our friends, hiding our identity in Christ or representing him just with words and not actions, it does sot please our Father in Heaven.  In fact, the Bible says that we become a stench in the nostril of God!  So here is the question, what aroma will you put off today? Will you live in a way that is pleasing to God or live in a way that is pleasing to the world around you?  The choice is your!

Today, will you put on the aroma of Christ so you can send a pleasing smell toward Heaven, one that the Father will enjoy and take delight in?
