The sweet aroma of Christ

A beautiful little meditation from pastor Richard Dahlstrom, which I quote in part here:
Aromas are a byproduct that reveal the essence of something. They don't set out to BE aromas, they simply are: Pine trees smell like pine; cigarette smoke like tobacco; coffee like heaven. That's the way it is.

Christ followers, when they're living in the moment as worshippers, listening for the voice of Jesus and stepping into His calling, smell like Christ. ...

The aroma ambition is liberating, in that it frees me from the ambitions, constant measurements, fears, and obsessions, that are necessarily wed with IMPACT. I've pretty much traded in IMPACT for AROMA.
