"The Aroma of Christ!"

“The Aroma of Christ!” But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of Him everywhere. 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… 2Corinthians 2:14-16.

In Paul’s thinking, the TRUE BELIEVERS are captives in Christ, and are in a triumphal procession. A Roman triumphal procession included the parading of their captives, and incense was burned. And in these verses of Scripture, the Apostle Paul compares the ‘knowledge of Christ’ to the PLEASING AROMA of the burning incense, which was diffused throughout the world by the preaching of the gospel.

Paul says that, “we are the pleasing AROMA of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.” We, the TRUE BELIEVERS, who are an example of the PLEASING AROMA of the burning incense, brings Christ to EVERYONE. For the TRUE BELIEVER’S life is an example of the gospel in action. And for the people being SAVED, the AROMA is a sweet smell, which leads the lost to a BETTER LIFE. But for people who are lost, and keep rejecting God’s gift of SALVATION, the AROMA is a BAD smell, and leads them to a horrible Spiritual death, that lasts for ALL eternity.

The Apostle Paul says that the TRUE BELIEVER is a PLEASING AROMA of Christ, to God, which brings Christ to everyone. Are you a TRUE BELIEVER, who is a PLEASING AROMA of Christ, and brings Christ to everyone? Are you diffusing the world with the SWEET AROMA of the gospel?

If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are one who can’t smell the PLEASING AROMA of Christ, and to you, it more than likely, is that the SWEET AROMA of the gospel is bad and offensive, and because of your rejection, the path you are on is leading you straight to Hell, the place of torment, torture, pain, and agony, for ALL eternity. But God is giving you another opportunity to ACCEPT His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ as your SAVIOR and LORD, and to ESCAPE Hell. You do that by; coming to Him with a TRULY 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 become a PLEASING AROMA of Christ to a lost and dying world. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
