I don't know about you, but I just love a good smelling aroma! I love cinnamon. I love myrrh. I love vanilla. When my home has a wonderful scent wafting throughout, it just feels good. Clean. Refreshed.
We are called to offer our lives as living sacrifices to God - a fragrant aroma. How do we do that?
He has been teaching me incredible amounts about living this out. I am learning some. It is hard to change decades old habits! He is changing me though - just a little bit each day. I can see that I'm moving in the right direction, though.
The way I can be an aroma for others is to be kind in responses to others. I tend to snap at people, especially if I'm busy or distracted. If I am to be that aroma, I need to look up from what I am doing and listen and truly interact with another. Another way I can be an aroma, is to reach out and help someone. This can be physically, financially, spiritually. It doesn't matter. However the need presents itself.
We show Jesus to others by how we treat them. Our flame has been ignited. Let's bring a pleasant aroma to his throne!
