2 Corinthians 2:14-15 – But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of Him. For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.
You smell like Jesus. That is an interesting statement, but think about what it means. Think about how smells relate in your mind. Smells are attached to memories. Think about that time when you got a whiff of something and it instantly took you to a different place. All of a sudden you lost in an image of Grandma’s house as a little child. Or maybe it’s not Grandma’s, but whatever it is brings a feeling of nostalgia over you. And it is a good feeling.
Now take a look at this verse, “For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.” When God looks down from heaven and He sees all the sin and all those who have turned their backs on Him it saddens Him. His heart breaks because He Loves each and every one of them. Then He smells something. This smell is sweet to Him and it brings a smile to His face, because it reminds Him of His Son Jesus. What He smells is you; you are the one who reminds Him of Jesus.
If you have Christ in your life you have been covered by His blood. When God looks at you He sees perfection, because He sees His Son Jesus in you. And through God we spread everywhere this fragrance, this knowledge of Jesus. We are the image of Jesus to those who are perishing. Let Christ shine through you.
