Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God, but this fragrance is perceived differently by those who are being saved and by those who are perishing..2 Corinthians 2:15
While driving past a field the other day, I noticed a single yellow flower growing among the grass. There must have been millions of blades of grass, and yet my attention was drawn to this single flower.
Why did this flower command attention?
Because......it was distinct.
If you are a true follower of Jesus, you will stand out among the world's views and actions. You won't look like the world, talk like the world, think like the world, or function like the world.
Jesus is the embodiment of Truth.
If Jesus is your Lord, do not be surprised by others' reactions as you represent Truth. Even those very close to you may not understand your stance on certain issues..
When Jesus' own family heard about this craziness, they went to drag Him out of that place. They were saying "He's out of His mind!" Mark 3:21.
If you are a disciple of Jesus, you should not to be discouraged or afraid when there is persecution for being different.......Jesus wasn't.
Bottom line is that the world needs to see, hear, feel, taste, and smell Truth in action.
Remember.....Truth always leaves the scent of love in the atmosphere.
Keep blooming Truth, for Jesus' sake!
