Fragrance of Life or Death By Brenda Drake

We are brought from death to life in Christ. We may not see the change but be sure others see the difference. The Word says there is an external and internal change.  Not only are we saved from the threat of hell’s punishment we no longer are the stench of death and decay. After salvation we have the aroma of Christ.

Fragrance of Life or Death

There is no mistaking the difference everyone can tell;
Life and death has different smells.
Look around at what you hear, taste, and see,
Are they life-giving things or do they stink?
Gossip may seem a tasty morsel but it brings death.
It has no life-giving promise to expect.
Hurtful words hang heavy in the heart and mind;
Have a terrible aroma that is hard to take sometimes.
To God there is an aroma sweet to hear, taste, and see.
His affection is constant for those who His gift receives.
Obedience along with, honor and respect for others;
 Is the sweet fragrance of your Soul’s Lover.
Jesus is life – He gives life to the lost.
He draws from death to new life at the Cross.
There is no mistaking the difference when you come.
From the stench of death to the sweet smell of rebirth with God as One.

2 Corinthians 2:14-16
Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.  For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?
