Welcome to Songs of Salvation! Each Sunday I will feature a Christian author sharing a "Song of Salvation" to uplift and encourage believers and glorify God.
And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death. Revelation 12:11 NLT
Authors, find out how to share your Song of Salvation here.
What’s Your Favorite Scent?
Walking through the airport to catch a connecting flight, I detected the delicious aroma of freshly baked cinnamon rolls. I’m sure the shop owners blow the scent out into the concourse hoping to attract hungry travelers like me. My eyes scanned the row of shops, and soon I spotted the familiar sign. I cringed and took a sip from my water bottle, then I reminded myself those gooey treats definitely were not part of my new sugar-free and gluten-free food plan.
As I passed the shop and made my way to the gate, my mind drifted to other favorite scents . . . freshly cut Christmas trees, apple spice candles, warm chocolate chip cookies, and lilacs in the spring. Each scent brought pleasure and special memories.
Did you know that our lives can give off a sweet smelling fragrance? As we share the gospel and live out the powerful, life-changing truths in His Word, we can attract others to Him . . . just like an irresistible scent. And there are not calories to regret!
Lord, help me spread the fragrance of Christ wherever I go today!
“But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of Him.”
2 Corinthians 2:14
