Good morning people whose very lives are a sweet fragrance to God.
Leviticus 6:15 NIV The priest is to take a handful of the finest flour and some olive oil, together with all the incense on the grain offering, and burn the memorial portion on the altar as an aroma pleasing to the Lord.
As kings and as priests unto the Lord, our lives, our lips and our love are to be an aroma that is pleasing to the Lord.
The aroma that is pleasing to the Lord is the full obedience of those who profess to love and serve Him.
I truly believe that these are days of realignment to the truth and to full obedience in the body of Christ. I realise that I have said this many times, and I no doubt will continue to say it many more times.
Because it is vitally needed and too often neglected!
I hear the words: “These are days of radical obedience!”
The word radical means relating to or affecting the fundamental nature of something; far-reaching or thorough.
Our full obedience to the Lord literally affects the fundamental nature of our lives!
Yes, we are completely transformed from dead to alive the moment we accept Christ. But as we become transformed by the renewing of our mind, discover God’s good, perfect and pleasing will, and then follow Him with every step, we increasingly see the transformation unfold!
Isn’t this the kind of obedience and heart posture that pleases God?
I believe that this is an aroma that is deeply pleasing to God.
