You are a Smell

Think about the smell of a dead animal. It is not a good smell! You don’t want to be near a dead animal. Now think about the smell of a flower garden. Maybe you smell a rose or a lily. A flower’s smell is very different from a dead animal’s smell. You probably prefer to smell a flower.
At the beginning of our Bible Reading, Paul is discouraged. Then Paul remembers something and becomes happy. Paul remembers that God made Christians to be His special workers. What is a Christian’s job? A Christian’s job is to be a smell!
Paul explains this in verses 15-16a, “Our offering to God is this: We are the sweet smell of Christ among people who are being saved and among people who are being lost. To the people who are being lost, we are the smell of death that brings death. But to the people who are being saved, we are the smell of life that brings life.”
Don’t forget that you have a special job to do today. God wants you to share His love with people who don’t know Him.
