Has God placed you in the fire? Then, live your life as an offering.
For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. (2 CORINTHIANS 2:15)
I hadn't seen Brad for a year. He’d been battling cancer, so when he arrived at our home I was very happy to see him. The dark circles under his eyes were evidence of his recent radiation and chemo treatments. But he gave me a wide grin when I asked how he was doing.
He said, “Mrs. Lotz, God has been so faithful to me. He’s brought me to the point where I can work again. He’s put my cancer in remission. He’s even giving me my next breath!”
When Brad left that day, the fragrance of his life filled my house. The experience reminded me of Exodus 29:18, which says the priests consecrated their sacrifice as an “offering to the LORD, a pleasing aroma, an offering made to the LORD by fire.”
Has God placed you in the fire? Then live your life as an offering, a pleasing aroma to God.
