“For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.” (2 Cor. 2:15 NIV)
This verse always reminds me that there is no more powerful testimony than that of a life fully surrendered to Christ, lived in accordance with Biblical principles, and reflecting the fruit of the Holy Spirit- love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These are the true markers of the aroma of Christ in our lives.
“What [others] most need is to see in you a reflection of what God is like and of the transforming power of the Gospel. Your life can create hunger and thirst for God in others’ lives and can be a powerful instrument in the hand of the Holy Spirit to draw their hearts to Christ.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Holiness, The Heart God Purifies
