Is the fragrance of him being spread from me? everywhere i walk and everyone i meet should get a whif of the aroma of his presence. (and hopefully not of anything else 🙈😂.) the way i talk, the decisions i make, the conversations i join in on and encourage. am i speaking in christ? am i encouraging gossip? i have a hard time to shut it down when i don't feel dominant in the conversation. if it is an older person or someone i don't want to give the impression that i'm some strange weirdo, i don't say anything. ok, definitely need to work on that. how do you avoid and discourage gossip?
now thanks be to god who always leads us in triumph in christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of his knowledge in every place. for we are to god the fragrance of christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. for we are not, as so many, peddling the word of god; but as of sincerity, but as from god, we speak in the sight of god in christ.
