Whiff – The Smell of Sacrifice
Series: Whiff
The summer time brings a new season, and a new season comes with its own look and smells. It is incredible what we can learn from our sense of smell. As a matter of fact, reading the Bible through a sense of smell may open our eyes and freshen our understanding of the scriptures, perhaps seeing them in a new light as we do the summer season.
 
A Living Sacrifice (Romans 12:1) Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.

    Series: Whiff
    John includes only seven of the signs (miracles) performed by Christ. The first is at the wedding at Cana, a joyful time of celebration. The last is the funeral at Bethany, a time of mourning. This is how the world is being recreated, among the songs at wedding and the tears at funerals. Jesus is present for it all.

    Whiff – The Smell of Perfume
    Series: Whiff
    Matthew 26:7-9 7 a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table. 8 When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. “Why this waste?” they asked. 9 “This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor.”
     
    This woman did what she could, with what she had, even if it frustrated the social order of the community. Like the disciples we tend to have an "educated opinion." We need people like the woman to reminds u of "uncalculated devotion."

    Series: Whiff
    He cleared the way for us to live for Him through faith, empowered by the Holy Spirit to live like Christ, offering His love and hospitality as we go. We call that "The aroma of Christ." We are made to be "smelly" now for all the right reasons this morning. May we continue to find avenues to promote the loving and redemptive aroma of Lord wherever we go.
