Overflowing Wine

aroma of Christ

i spent some time today harvesting basil seeds … fa those who dont know…when basil goes to seed it dies, it stops producing basil leaves, and it flowers up then the flowers die and gets these small small pods that turn dark and brittle…and in each tiny pod is like 4 or 5 seeds….and they are all th same size and color and its amazing to get seeds from plants as th Lord leads and reveals Himself in us…

as i was doin this i was thinkin how even bein dead, th basil plant still has that wonderful basil aroma…tho nothin of it even resembles th basil leaf that u harvest fa cookin, and its dead, brown and brittle..it doesnt lose its wonderful aroma…

and th Lord spoke to me and said…you are th aroma of Christ…

and so we are…outwardly dying, inwardly alive in Christ …to those who are perishing, we smell like death, but to those who are saved, we are th aroma of Christ…

Now thanks be to God, which always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.  For we are to 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?  For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ. 2 Corinthians 2:14-17
