The Fragrance of Your Life Print

In the apostle Paul’s letter to the Christians in the city of Ephesus, he spoke of Jesus being a “fragrant offering” to God.  Because of our Savior’s unquenchable love for mankind and His desire to surrender His life for our salvation – His sacrifice took on an odor that overwhelmed heaven itself.  Can you imagine how our senses will be assaulted by this indescribable fragrance as we enter the presence of God and literally take in the aroma of Christ?

Consider the fact that our sacrificial living can be a sweet smell to God as well.  If we dare imitate the life of Jesus and desire to live in obedience to His commands – our actions will become that fragrant offering.

Paul’s challenge to the early believers in Ephesus to be imitators of God holds just as true  for today’s followers.  So, live a life of love, and walk as children of the light, being wise in all you do, so that there may not be even be a hint of impurity within your heart – then watch as the sweet fragrance of your Christ-filled life begins to affect change in your world!
