what’s that smell?

There is something different about the human sense of smell.  Unlike touch, taste, and sight, you cannot not smell things (as for hearing, Maggie will tell you that I often sleep with ear plugs!).  Like walking into a kitchen, just by the fact that you are breathing you take in the smells around you.

Paul says that “we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing” (II Corinthians 2:15).  You and I have a smell, a funky odor that some people will identify immediately, while for others they can’t quite place it.

If you and I are an aroma, it means that wherever we are and whatever we are doing, we have to be the smell of Christ.  When we’re around others, they shouldn’t be able to breathe without getting a whiff of our BO (Body of Christ Odor).

I love the smell of salvation in the morning.
