TO THE BIBLE: 2 Corinthians 2:15
“For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.”
Do you know that God needs you in order to reach the world? He makes His divine presence and power felt in the earth through His children. That’s why the scriptures refer to us as the fragrance of Christ. 2 Corinthians 2:14 says that God “…through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.”
The Spirit of God doesn’t have a physical body of His own. He needs yours to reach out to others like you. He had lived in the body of Jesus when He was here on earth. Hence, Jesus could say, “…The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works” (John 14:10). Today, He needs your body to function. If you’d give yourself to Him, He can work through you to impact many more lives. Understand that He wants to bless the world. He wants to touch everyone, and bring each one into the perfect will of God for their lives. He’ll accomplish this as you let Him express Himself through you.
Be determined to reveal Christ in your world today. Talk about Him to your peers. Spread the knowledge of His awesome personality in your environment. Diffuse the wonderful fragrance of His love and kindness among those around you.
I’m filled with the glory of God, because Christ lives in me. I’m giving off the pleasant and life-changing fragrance of God’s love, joy, mercy and peace as I speak and relate to those in my world. I am the Lord’s outstretched arm to my generation, and I’m making a great difference for Him, in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
Dispense the fragrance of Christ through your speech. Choose to speak the right words to those in your world.
