A Sweet Savour

A family in our church makes goat’s soap (Naturally Soothing), and we put small bars into our welcome packages.  The bars are stored in the church office.

Recently, I went into the office for something and caught a whiff of the beautiful smell of goat’s soap; it almost made me cry because that dear family has moved to South Dakota – a rather long commute! The lingering scent was a sweet reminder of many precious memories.

2 Corinthians  2:15 says that “we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ,”  Our lives are like the sweet incense that rose from the altar of sacrifice. As we offer our lives to His service, we become that “sweet savour of Christ” unto God.  He watches as we serve Him, fellowship one with the other, worshiping Him in spirit and truth, overlooking each other’s faults, and we rise like a sweet smell, reminding God the Father that it truly was worth sending His Son to the cross!  He looks down upon are actions and attitudes which reflect the love of his precious Son and we are a “sweet savour.”

How is it with you? When you enter into a room, is there a “sweet savour of Christ” that accompanies your words and deeds?  Does your presence send a sweet savour throughout the atmosphere, making other think of Christ?

When you go, is there a lingering “sweet savour of Christ” left behind, making others think on Jesus because your attitude and actions so graciously reflected our Savior?

What a challenge this has been to me!!!!  May the Lord bless you as you spread His sweet savour in his absence!  Oh how this stinky world needs it!

I've been blogging for several years now, and continue to be thankful for the opportunity to share my heart, as well as hone my writing skills. When I was urged to write about my passion, three things came to mind: my God, my family, and music. I am a born-again believer of Jesus Christ. My doctrine is Baptist, my stand is fundamental. I love the Word of God and want to share how it has changed my life. It is my primary passion; however, my family is the close second! God has blessed me with a wonderful godly husband who has led me and discipled me in my walk with Christ. God also gave us three wonderful children who, along with their spouses, all love the Lord and are passionate soldiers in God's army as well. Add seven grandchildren, and my heart is overflowing with praise to my God! Music comes in third and is a great burden on my heart. We all need to find what is acceptable and pleasing to God in this area. Like every area of the Christian life, we cannot just choose music because we like it.
