March 23 2017 – Put on His scented garments to be the fragrance of Christ.

Psalm 45 verse 8, speaking of the Messiah, of Jesus says:

All Your garments are scented with myrrh and aloes and cassia,

All Christ’s garments are scented with beautiful perfume.

2 Corinthians 2 verses 15 & 16 says of us:

15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. 

We are to be the fragrance of Christ to God……among those being saved…..the aroma of life leading to life.

Galatians 3:27 says that as many of us as were baptised into Christ have put on Christ.

It is only when we put on Christ, His good deeds, His virtues, that we can be the fragrance of Christ. It is He and He alone who produces that fragrance, not ourselves.

We must every moment put off what gets in the way of Christ, and put on Christ, put on His scented garments, to be the fragrance of Christ.
