2 Corinthians 2:15
For we are the sweet fragrance of Christ unto God, among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.
What fragrance are you wearing? Would you rather have more attention drawn to your personality, looks and perfume than to the knowledge of Jesus in you? Do we desire to be recognised more than we want Jesus to be recognised? Please don't misunderstand me, we all want to look, feel and most certainly smell good and that’s okay. All I am saying is let’s make sure that Jesus is the main attraction to others in all that we do. In a church service, I personally feel that the fragrance of a homeless man, who hasn't showered in days, is more attractive than the man or woman who is perfectly tailored and perfumed.
