The Mission to the World Day 17 of 20


Do you smell of Jesus? Paul captures a familiar scene in the Roman Empire –a victorious general leads his army and displays the spoils of his victory, with incense offered to the gods. Here, it is we – as people saved by Christ from our sin and a life without God – who are on display. There is something here of the suffering of Christ in which we share. But everywhere we go, says Paul, we spread “the aroma of the knowledge” of Christ. Wherever we go today, may people smell Jesus in what we do and say.
