Thought for the day

I like perfume and my favourite is lily of  the valley. Like many children I used to make  my own from flower petals, mostly roses. At the end of Exodus ch. 30  there is a recipe  for perfumed oil. It was to  be used exclusively for the worship of God. In Corinthians we  read that we,the followers of Jesus, are  the fragrance of Christ to God and to  those around us.

  ”For we are to  God the  fragrance of Christ  among those who are being saved and those who are perishing “ 
2 Cor. Ch.2 v.15.

As Paul says. “ Who is equal  to such a task”.  V. 16

To be the fragrance of Christ, to be Jesus to  those around us, we have to spend  time in His presence. Not only in personal prayer and intercession, important though that is, but enjoying His company and basking in His  love.

Some of us have more time for  this just now.

As Psalm 37 says

“Delight yourself in the Lord and He  will give you the desires of your heart “

May God bless us all in these strange times.
