At a recent high school baseball game, I noticed a sweet aroma in the air. Looking around, I could not immediately locate the source of the smell. Then I saw some honeysuckle beyond the left field fence. It had to be what was responsible for the nice fragrance in the air. This was pretty impressive, since I was along the right field line, a good 250 feet away from the honeysuckle.
I was reminded of what Paul told the church at Corinth. He said that we Christians are the aroma of Christ. Our lives should give off a fragrance that attracts people to Jesus.
14 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. 15 For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are an aroma that brings death; to the other, an aroma that brings life. And who is equal to such a task?–2 Corinthians 2:14-16.
My team lost. That stunk.
But you get the point.
