Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“The Fragrance of Christ”
Text: Deut. 2:25
“‘This day I will begin to put the dread and fear of you upon the nations under the whole heaven, who shall hear the report of you, and shall tremble and be in anguish because of you.’”
Aaaah, “The Fragrance of Christ” is on our menu for Breakfast this Sunday Morning! It’s The Lord’s Day and His Fragrance of Life is fresh and sweet among us this morning. God is showing Israel the effect of His Fragrance in their life in our text this morning. It caused all the nations to dread Israel and their God. This dread kept some of these nations within their border that God appointed for them - but for Hesbon and Bashan this dread was the Fragrance of death and destruction, because Hod had appointed this land for Israel.
The Bible shows us: “For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.
To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?” (2Corin.2:15-16).
The Warriors Life is to be a Fragrance of Christ to all people.
To those who are perishing in their lawlessness - we’re the aroma of death as we warn them of sin’s payday.
To those who are being saved by our testimony leading them to Jesus - we’re the ‘aroma of life leading to life’
The zeal of Israel for God made their fragrance great and overwhelming; dread, fear, trembling, and anguish touched these nations. When their zeal for God faded their fragrance faded also.
Listen up Warrior! Keep the fire of your zeal burning for your Commander and King. Stir up the coals of passion for His Cause which has become your Cause also! The souls of mankind. Be The Fragrance of God wherever you are - in whatever you do! Ooooh Rah!
