A Fragrance

Thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ,

and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.

2 Corinthians 2:14

Believers in the Lord Jesus have been rescued from death by faith in Him. But another way to view believers in Christ is as ‘commissioned captives’ in that they have also been tasked with sharing with others the same good news that has brought them from darkness to light, from death to life.

Believers have access to the greatest gift given to humanity—Christ. The apostle Paul says we are to “spread the fragrance of the knowledge of Him everywhere

(2 Corinthians 2:14). He refers to those who share the Gospel as “as having the fragrance of Christ” to those who are being saved, but the fragrance of death to those who are perishing (v 15–16), because they have rejected Christ.

After we receive Christ as our Saviour, we have the privilege of using our limited time on earth to spread His life-changing truth while loving others. Even during our hardest and loneliest moments, we can trust He will provide what we need. No matter what the personal cost, God’s Good News is always worth sharing.

Bible Reading

2 Corinthians 2:12-17.


Dear Lord God, help me in every area of my life, to share the Lord Jesus with others You bring across my path. In Christ's name, I ask. Amen.
