I am Triumphant and have the Sweet Savour Of Christ
Bible Nugget 0225 [2 Corinthians 2:14-17]
14Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
15For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:
16To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?
17For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.
This was the first Bible Nugget, the Holy Spirit ministered to me when I began to lay the groundwork for the bible and prayer nugget, an arm of the Christ our Wisdom and Power Missions. I meditate on this scripture from time to time; and it always make me exude great confidence that I am triumphant always in Christ, as long as I am in right standing with God. Jesus sweetens lives and as a disciple of Jesus, a Christian’s life should radiate the glory and power that Jesus radiates on us. When Jesus was on earth, he healed the sick, raised the dead, healed the broken hearted, comforted those who were mourning and gave liberty to those who were in bondage. How sweet-smelling his life was?
Acts 10:38, Amplified bible reads
38How God anointed and consecrated Jesus of Nazareth with the [Holy] Spirit and with strength and ability and power; how He went about doing good and, [f]in particular, curing all who were harassed and oppressed by [the power of] the devil, for God was with Him.
Jesus has deposited his powers in my life and every believer’s life to sweeten the lives of others and radiate his power by the Power of the Holy Spirit. On earth, Jesus said we to his disciples, he will send the Holy Spirit and “each one of you will do greater works because I go back to my Father in heaven” [John 14:12, paraphrased]. This was literarily fulfilled in the life of Peter (his shadow healed the sick, Acts 5:15) and Paul (anointed handkerchief’s from him healed people, Acts 19:11-12) after the day of Pentecost. The power of the Holy Spirit transformed their lives, becoming clean vessels in the hand of God. A person’s life is like salt. It can sweeten or destroy. My prayer is that the beauty of Jesus be seen in your life and that you radiate the power of God in Jesus Name. Amen.
