The Sweet Aroma of Jesus
By Frances Seymour
My friend Chris can be quite the enthusiast. For example, if you just mention the name of Jesus within earshot, you have lit a match that can quickly become a towering inferno. This person loves to talk about Jesus and openly shares God’s blessings with others. As evangelistic as she is, sometimes, we may want to calm her down and stuff her back in a box somewhere. Do you know people like this? Can you relate?
This thought reminds me of a recent episode with my 7-year-old granddaughter. Gracie absolutely loves the cartoon character, Scooby Doo. Because of this, I display a Scooby air freshener dangling from the rear view mirror in my Explorer.
On the way back home from a trip to Atlantic, Gracie realized that Scooby’s odor protection was no longer working. She knew that I had purchased a back up Scooby who was resting comfortably inside the glove compartment. She reached up and yanked the old Scooby from the mirror as she said, “Maw Maw, I think it is time to replace this Scooby, don’t you?” Then she reached inside the glove compartment. She found the new Scooby and quickly ripped the package open. What she did next was outrageously funny.
As soon as she tore into the air freshener package, she exclaimed, “Wow Scooby, you are too excited!” Then she continued with, “Maw Maw, we are going to have to put him in here until he calms down a bit,” as she opened the console and stuffed him inside. “Boy is he excited to get out of that bag!” she said as she waved her hand in a fanning motion over her cute little face. This action was hilarious and I literally cracked up! But, then on a more somber note, I saw the parallel for us, as Christians. You see, we need to be more like Scooby and Chris too, for that matter, as we excitedly carry the good news and permeate the sweet aroma of Jesus Christ throughout the world today.

But my life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus--the work of telling others the Good News about God's wonderful kindness and love.
Acts 20:24 (NLT)


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
