Sweet-Smelling Perfume

Every season of the year has some special smells. It is spring now. In the spring, I love the smell of lilac bushes. In summer, I enjoy smelling freshly-cut grass. The bonfires of fall are a welcome smell for me, and I like the scent of evergreen and pine trees in the winter.
Maybe you have been in a room with someone who was wearing a very nice perfume. The smell of the perfume filled the whole room. In verse 14b of our Bible Reading today, Paul says that the Good News about Jesus is a “sweet-smelling perfume” that Christians spread everywhere. When other people are with us, they should see that we are Christians and want to follow Jesus, too.
So what should you do? Your “offering to God is to be the perfume of Christ that goes out to those who are being saved and to those who are being lost” (verse 15a). Tell someone about Jesus’ plan of salvation today and help them receive new life in Him.
