Spreading The Jesus Fragrance, Intentionally

302

By Oge Funlola Modie

Remember how you always recognize the scent of a loved one once you step into the room?  You instantly know that Mum or Dad have been in that room.  This week we take a look at what I have called the Jesus Perfume.

Our text is taken from 2Corinthians 2:14-15a

But Thank God! He has made us captives and continues to lead us along in Christ’s triumphal procession. Now He uses us to spread the knowledge of Christ everywhere, like a sweet perfume. Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. (NLT) 

In the scripture above, we see that God uses us to spread the knowledge of Christ, this simply means that in every aspect of life, we should bring the fragrance of Christ that promotes the knowing of our Lord. The fragrance proves to people that you are different, you are re-born, and you are a child of God. You transform places by the power and presence of the Lord Jesus. Your actions advertise the kingdom of God so people start to say I like this fragrance or ask “who are you wearing?”  Your answer- I wear Jesus!

We are the Jesus Perfume- Our everyday lives should give out a sweet aroma of Christ in us, working through us and liberating the lives of men by His power at work in us. As we submit every day to the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives, we build our aroma of Christ. When we come in contact with people, they should recognize that which we carry and it’s saving power unto them that believe.
SO what aroma are you carrying?  Are you the Jesus Perfume? Or do you wear a different fragrance? Is your aroma spreading the knowledge of Christ or the knowledge of man? Is this aroma bringing salvation or death to many? Today, consider what aroma you are giving off.

PRAYER:  Jesus, I want to be more like you. Help me die to self and live to you. I want to be the Jesus Perfume, spreading your fragrance in every place so that I can bring people to the knowledge of you. Amen
CHARGE FOR THE WEEK:  Reflect on what you are giving off. Ask the Holy Spirit to help with the areas of your life that need improving on.  Be that sweet smelling fragrance that is pleasing to God. Let Him use you to draw souls to Himself.
