One of the many things I like about this time of year are the wonderful aromas that come from the various blooms of late springtime. I especially enjoy the fragrance of the honeysuckle that grows around the perimeter of our property. Just the other day I was riding the mower when I noticed it. I actually smelled it before I saw it, and started looking around for it. There is was–honeysuckle—an honest to goodness delight for the nostrils.
The Bible says that we Christians are the aroma of Christ. We spread the fragrant scent of the gospel wherever we go. Our presence makes known to everyone—saved or lost—the good news of salvation through Jesus. What a great privilege it is to be used by God in such a special way!
“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.”—2 Corinthians 2:14-15.
