Sweet Aroma of Jesus Christ

When we 'taste' of the Lord, we see that He is GOOD! When we smell the mercies of Christ crucified we declare that He is altogether lovely!
2 Corinthians 2:15For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. 16To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life. And who is equal to such a task?
The smell of Christ causes one of two reactions, to the one who sees, hears, tastes of His glory He is the essence of life, the blessed hope BUT to the other Jesus Christ only smells of death, His ways, truth, and life are revolting to the one who doesn't desire Him, doesn't love and follow Him.

What a wonder is the reality that we have been privileged to know of Him.
Who would have thought that grace Could or Would have been given to such ones as us?
How great indeed is the Father's love towards us, that He washed us white as snow?
Jesus Christ gave us the ability to enjoy Him, He gave us the taste buds to relish Him!
It was Jesus who opened our senses, who gave sight to such blind fools as us!
Had He left us in our filth, had Christ passed over us, who could fault Him?
Glory to God He looked and had pity, He saw you and He saw me and said 'What a worm is that one there, if ever there was one who warranted the full fury of my wrath, here is one, BUT I wish, I desire to give this undeserving beast mercy, to lavish love on this one with ALL my heart, ALL my soul, ALL my mind, and ALL my strength.
Praise the Lord, He found me!
