Have you ever showered with one of those aromatherapy shower gels? I’ve seen scents that claim to relax you, make you more alert, and even increase your sensuality. Regardless of the benefit marked on the label, there is yet very noticeable evidence that you used THAT particular product. Anyone who comes anywhere near you can easily identify what you showered with. The aroma is strong, unique, and usually pleasant.
He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.
Ephesians 1:7-8 (NLT)
This is the picture I thought of when I read the verse above this morning. The top three ingredients in ‘God’s shower gel’ are kindness, wisdom, and understanding. When we have accepted His free gift of salvation & patterned our lives after His Son…His riches spill over onto us. I guess you could say that we get to use God’s shower gel……consequently smelling like Him. The end result would be that people we come in close contact with would enjoy our aroma…and that it would in turn remind them of God’s sweet Spirit in us!
Of all the things that we could potentially smell like this week, may you take on the aroma of our Creator.
