Be a rose today.

2 Cor 2:15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.

I love the fragrance of roses or the smell of pines on a cool morning.
I once stood at the edge of a huge field of bluebonnets. I described the fragrance as intoxicating.
The smell of hickory or oak on a fire is a pleasing smell to me.
But a bed of roses, a field of bluebonnets, or a forest of pines are all obliterated by the spray of one skunk.
You are the fragrance – the delicate, sweet smell of Christ to a lost and dying world.
Just as you smell a rose and desire to do it again and again, so your life in Christ should make others come back to you (and Christ) again and again.
But if you are a skunk for the Lord you will repulse people away no matter how many others are fragrant for the Lord.
Be a rose for the Lord today!
