“But, thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.” 2 Corinthians 2:14 ESV

Last week I used this verse in reference to the fragrance of four-o’clocks in the garden. As I thought more about it, another fragrance came to mind – women’s perfume.

Not all women’s perfume is pleasingly fragrant to me. Some is too strong (or applied too heavily) and is overpowering. Some has what I consider a strange smell – but that’s just a matter of taste.

But, I do have a favorite perfume that other women wear (other women being all who are not my wife, Sharon). My favorite perfume that other women wear is any one that reminds me of Sharon. If their perfume is one that Sharon uses, the fragrance takes my mind immediately to her.

That seems to be the way to spread the fragrance of Christ. Our actions and words should remind others of Jesus and take their minds immediately to Him.
