What’s the best Christmas scent? Is it cinnamon? Pine? Nutmeg? No, it’s much better than those! The “aroma of Christ” is something every Christian spreads like a sweet perfume.
Read carefully: “But thanks be to God, who always puts us on display in Christ and through us spreads the aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place. For to God we are the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing” 1 Corinthians 2:14-15.
How are you handling extra stresses of the Christmas season? With unusual expectations, bulging calendars and extra work, it’s easy to become anxious and self-absorbed. But that’s not an option for a Christian.
You are assigned to spread the fragrance of Christ everywhere. God’s the source; you’re the scent-carrier. Try these simple ways to intentionally spread His aroma:
— If you use social media, each update, “like” or photo can be a life-giving fragrance to readers seeking purpose in life and an uplifting aroma to Christians.
— In the place where you work, your Christ-like fragrance permeates the atmosphere. Give your best work effort during this season. Be extra patient and kind with coworkers and clients.
