In my quiet time the other day I read an encouraging passage of Scripture that I want to share with you.
For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life. 2 Corinthians 2:15-16
I was so encouraged and edified from reading this verse. God made me realize that his words are words of life to those who are being saved; that He could use me, my mouth, to edify the saints that I come in contact with on a daily basis. So, while I was at work, I began to praise the Lord in song. In Spanish song actually. And, it was so fun! But, more importantly, the words I sang imparted life and grace to the hearers.
God has been filling me with his spirit and imparting a boldness to speak and sing for him in the workplace. When a co-worker was sick, I prayed for him. When a believing customer came in with a problem, I prayed for her aloud as naturally as I was conducting her transaction. His grace is upon my life! Hallelujah, praise the Lord.
