We are the sweet fragrance of Christ. And, this fragrance ascends to God. This is discernible among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. Everywhere we go, people breathe in the exquisite fragrance. Because of Christ, we give off a sweet scent rising to God, which is recognized by those on the way of salvation—an aroma redolent with life.
In fact, God thinks of us as a perfume that brings Christ to everyone. For people who are being saved, this perfume has a sweet smell and leads them to a better life. But for people who are lost, it has a bad smell and leads them to a horrible death. So, it is a challenge that this fragrance will last in us and it is a sweet aroma for others. Be a good example!
