SPREAD YOUR FRAGRANCE!Stella Dhinakaran

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)

The Dhinakarans Dearly beloved in Christ,

We all desire to spread our fragrance to others, from our life. To whichever house we may go, this divine fragrance should come out of us to those people as well as to those who come seeking us. How we can do that? Let us meditate on the important characteristics that ought to be seen to give forth this fragrance: A faithful life “He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.” (I Thessalonians 5:24)

As the Bible thus says, since He, who has called you is faithful, this fragrance will come out of you when you are also faithful. Apostle Paul too has written, “If we are faithless, He (the Lord Jesus Christ) remains faithful” (II Timothy 2:13). One day the Lord Jesus Christ met a terrible man called Saul. After that he has written, “I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry.” (I Timothy 1:12)

Dearly beloved, the Lord has called us also accordingly. Seeing the little faithfulness in us, He has kept us as the ruler over many, particularly over the Lord’s ministry saying, “you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things” (Matthew 25:21,23). When we are thus faithful to Him, the Lord will give us abundant blessing (Proverb 28:20). That’s why Peter writes in II Peter 1:10, “Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble”

The faithful Lord has given His ministry in our hands, counting us to be faithful. Hence, every day, we need to know what the will of God is and fulfill it faithfully.


PRAYER

Loving Lord Jesus,

I thank You for granting me the gift of salvation and accepting me as your child. I seek your blessings upon my life. Please deliver me from my problems. Remember me and bless me in double measure. Exalt me before all eyes and make me a blessing for others. Fill my heart with your divine love. Use me as your divine vessel to spread the fragrance of your love everywhere.
In Your matchless name I pray.

Amen.
