My Identity in Christ #13 - I am the sweet fragrance of Christ to God

I've begun praying these points of identity over myself each day.  And then I try to meditate on that point throughout the day.  It's really helping to strengthen my helmet of salvation.

Now that my Bible Study group has finished Priscilla Shirer’s Armor of God study, I need to keep moving in the right direction.  Continuing this series of blog posts taken from the list Priscilla included in her 6th week of Bible study regarding our identity and inheritance in Christ.  I pray these reflections will open your eyes to how much God loves you.  Read them as if you wrote them.  Meditate on them.  God bless you.
I am the sweet fragrance of Christ to God

2 Corinthians 2:15 tells me that to God, I am the pleasing aroma of Christ.  I don’t know about you, but I stink, sometimes.  I don’t always behave well or say the right things or remain silent when I should.  Sometimes I’m selfish and whiny and pouty.  Sometimes I rebel against what God has asked me to do.  But I am His.  I always come back to His throne with an apology and a genuine desire to do His will.  Why?  Because Christ died for me, I know and accept it and His blood covers me so that’s what the Father sees when I approach Him.  It’s nice to know that regardless of how badly I think I mess things up, to my holy Father in heaven I always come out smelling like the Rose of Sharon.
