Sense of smell play a distinguished role in awakening all our senses whether they be the smell of a freshly baked pie, to French fries, or even a rotten fried fish. It could either stench up the place ,or spread a pleasant scent throughout our home.
My family and I love to eat fried fish but I am not very fond of cleaning the fish. Just the other day I got some fish, washed it thoroughly, put some spices and cooked it. I realized one of the fishes had gone bad, and well the whole house smelled like fish and I ended up using my entire apple cinnamon fragrant candle to make the smell go away.
Truth about Stench :
The stench of sin can overpower our entire being if we are not careful to replace it with the scent or aroma of Christ.
The stench of #sin can overpower our entire being if we don’t replace it with the #aroma of Christ
We read in the Bible from the Book of Genesis 25:29-34 how Esau sold his birthright of a firstborn to his cunning younger brother just for a bowl of stew. Esau came back from the field famished and asked for a bowl of stew prepared by his younger brother Jacob, and his baby brother agreed if Esau sold his birthright. The smell of stew was so strong that Esau sold himself out and lost out on a lifetime of blessings for him and his entire generations to come.
- Do we compromise ourselves when it comes to sin and sell ourselves to the cunning devil just for a bowl of pleasure?
We often forget that the pleasure of sin can drag us into a pit of decay and foul stench and we must pay a heavy price for it ultimately.It is important that we put away everything that fills our lives with the stench of sin, so that we can be a fragrance for others.
Why do we need a Savior?
Every sinful choices we make knowingly and unknowingly have its own consequences; a heavy price to pay. The Bible in the book of Romans 3:23 says that “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”. Our sins separate us from the One and Only Holy God and our Creator and the wages of sin is death.(Romans 6:23).
Now ,this is what GOSPEL means GOOD NEWS. God the Father send His only begotten Son Jesus to be our Savior ,who took it upon Himself this penalty of our sins by taking the form of man.
Why did Jesus take a form of man? Man sinned and someone had to die in his stead, so this is how God took our place and suffered on the Cross while still being God.
Jesus died for your sins, was buried and on the third day He raised up from the dead. Today, the work of redemption and justification is finished and all those who were far away from the Lord can be reconciled by His blood and become His family.
The blood of Jesus Christ can wash away all our sins and make us whole again. Let us put to death everything that is of the earthly and sinful nature within us today. Jesus is not ashamed to be called your God, so come to HIM just as you are today.
The Gospel Of Jesus Christ :
The Bible says Do not harden your hearts and admit that you are sinner, confess your sins , and believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for your sins, and rose up from the grave victoriously you will be saved today.
Take our Stench of Sin to Yahweh and watch Him transform them to Scent for Christ
Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17,KJV)
There is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (Romans 8:1,KJV)
I got saved in the month and year of November 2nd, 1996 as a young girl and it was an amazing restoration I experienced that night. I would love to know when you received Christ in your heart and how transformed your life has been since then.
