Stop and smell the roses.

Genesis 8:22

22 “As long as the earth endures,

seedtime and harvest,

cold and heat,

summer and winter,

day and night

will never cease.”

Have you ever wonder what is the context of the this verse?

It is said right God smelled the pleasing aroma of the sacrifice Noah offered.

Genesis 8:21

21 The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: “Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though every inclination of his heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done.

Notice God is still faithful despite of our inclination being evil. It was because of the aroma.

Today we are all new creations, we no longer are evil in our inclination, we have the Spirit of Christ, we are partakers of the divine nature.

We are the aroma of Christ.

2 Corinthians 2:15

15 For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.

If that is so, can we not count on a better aroma to secure His faithfulness to us?

Don’t doubt. Believe!
