Daily devotional: Spreading the aroma of Christ

Scripture
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.
2 Corinthians 2:14-15 NIV

Observation
Everywhere that Paul went, people experienced the message of Jesus Christ. It so permeated Paul's character and actions that this message was like a fragrance spread everywhere, the aroma of Christ.

Application
Let my life and my witness be the fragrance of the knowledge of Jesus to all I am around.

Prayer
Lord, thank you so much for the weekend You gave me. Thank you for blessing me so richly, for meeting and surpassing all my needs. Thank you for blessing us with health and strength, and for your peace that passes all understanding. Thank you for contentment. Thank you Jesus for living Your life through me, Holy Spirit for living in me and filling me with every good thing You have for me. Please grow me. Help me to be the fragrance of the knowledge of Jesus to all I am around. Make me a witness for You, so that all will know You or at least know about You so they can decide for themselves who they will follow. And please open everyone's hearts and minds so they can choose You. I love you, Lord!
