TLIC Daily. Day 208. July 27: The aroma of Christ.

When we choose to embrace his cruciform life, our sacrificial love will always be the aroma of the crucified Christ to others. To some it will be a fragrance from life to life. But to others it will be a fragrance from death to death. To some your life will smell sweet, and to others your life will be a revolting stench. Some will embrace you, others may reject you. Our response to the cross is a life of humility and joy that spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. The rest is up to God.
