A People in a Place, Week 11 “The Aroma”
This message concludes our series A People in a Place with a look at two meaningful features from 2 Corinthians 2, verse 14: the triumph that is ours because of Christ’s victory on the Cross, and the “fragrance” we Christians offer others as we live a transformed life among our neighbors.
Both qualities are an essential feature of life for those who follows Jesus. Romans 8:29 speaks to the transformation we experience while 2 Corinthians 4 declares how we live within an attractive triumph, one designed to appeal to people who are accepting Jesus invitation. Our transformation begins when we start following the Lord, and continues as the Spirit makes us more like Christ over time. The effects of that transformation fill the space between us and others like a distinct aroma, attractive to some and repulsive to others.
