Who Gives Kudos:



 

  

On Display

Have you ever brewed a fresh pot of coffee early in the morning or walked into a room to its pervasive fragrance?

Well, there is something that—that coffee has in common with being “put on display” by God in life. 2 Corinthian 3:14 pretty much sums it up. It says, “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 (HCSB).

As I sat and meditated on this scripture, I recalled a dream I had and recorded in my journal at the end of this past March. This was, and is, amazing to me because I hardly remember my dreams, but in the dream I was pregnant and the baby was kicking and it was an extremely noticeable event.  It seemed as though I was “on display”.  Those around me could see the movements of the baby protruding through my belly. They stood in awe as they watched the baby move within me.

I am humbled that God chooses to use me. You, too, should be humbled that God chooses to use you. To be “put on display in Christ” to spread His aroma in every place we go, just as that freshly brewed coffee.

Another thing I remembered about the dream was the feeling I had, as if I were pregnant for someone else. This is exactly the case, or should be the case, in every believer. That which we are (spiritually) pregnant with is for the edifying of the body.

Our communication, our conduct, our dress, and ultimately, our lives….are “put on display” daily, thus, our lives can exude a sweet aroma or a foul odor. Others are taking notice, whether we know it or not.  Everything about us should be displayed in godliness. Some things are acceptable or permissible, but are they necessary? Are they beneficial? Though, some things may be acceptable to US, we must ask ourselves continuously, “Is this acceptable to God (Ref.: 1 Corin. 10:23)?” We should adjust our standards to align with God’s standards. We must keep in the forefront of our minds that as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are God’s ways higher than ours (Isaiah 55:9).

Remember….our actions should be dictated knowing that we are on display before God and before others.
