A strange smell

Our receiver broke a bottle of annointing oil today. He was embarrassed because no matter where he walked, you could sense (or is that scents?) his presence. The more I thought about it though, the more he became a really cool metaphor for our christian walk. 2 Cornithians 2:15 & 16 says,

"Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. But this fragrance is perceived differently by those who are being saved and by those who are perishing. To those who are perishing, we are a dreadful smell of death and doom. But to those who are being saved, we are a life-giving perfume. And who is adequate for such a task as this?"

My hope for you today is that you will bear a Christ-like fragrance everywhere you may go.

Blessings!

You know I've thought about that Scripture a lot, but not in a real way like that. It does bring life to the Word and his scent gave him away. We are the Lord's. Good post. Good metaphor for life. love, Annette

Karen,
I helped clean it up off the floor and you right it is a smell that stays with you no matter... I love this passage it makes me think are we not to smell like Jesus, in all we do and where we go...
I pray that I I smell like him enough that those that don't know Jesus will ask about him and or just want to be near enough that I can tell them about Jesus... Have a good night and i will see you bright and earlie at work in the morning...

This is a beautiful thought, Karen. I hope that we are able to be a sweet aroma to those around us.

I may be showing my ignorance here, but what is a receiver?
