Day 241 Smelly Christians!

2 cor 2:15 "For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing".

People will be attracted to us because of the "pleasing aroma of Christ". I can understand being "an aroma that brings life"; that we are also" an aroma that brings death" what I don't understand is that its pleasing in both cases. Just got it, four little words and one big perspective "we are to God". It's His perspective that matters. Christ is the sacrifice and we are also sacrificed vicariously through him.

I am meeting someone for the second time later today for coffee. We both signed up for singing lessons with a group of ladies called Women of Note and she is really keen to get to know me. I am cautious when someone is that keen, so we will see if the aroma of Christ produces results.

"we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God".

  1. It will be interesting to see if she is a sales woman or simply a sanguine who is overly anxious to meet people.
