The Fragrance That Brings The Right Lover

There is something about the smell that comes off you; it determines who/what you attract.
 
 
If you wear an expensive cologne, it's a great attraction.
 
In the physical realm, how you smell matters; so take good care of yourself, so that the fragrance from you doesn't chase the right bae/boo away!
 
Bathe 3 times a day if you have to.
 
Wear a cologne if you have to.
 
Just make sure the fragrance coming off you is cool.
 
[That was on a lighter note... lol... but I'm serious too]
 
As it is in the natural realm, so it is in the spiritual realm. We also emit certain fragrance in the spiritual realm, and that determines what happens in our lives physically (you know the spiritual controls the physical).
 
Quick question:
What type of cologne are you wearing spiritually?
 
Could that be the reason behind the results you are seeing in the physical realm?
 
Listen.
 
The fragrance you exude [spiritually] creates an atmosphere around you, and that atmosphere largely determines who or what follows you.
 
Is everyone who has ever been interested in you not interested in God?
 
It may be the fragrance you bear. It may be the aura you carry spiritually.
 
There's a fragrance we are meant to exude as believers - the fragrance of Christ.
 
"In the Messiah, in Christ, God leads us from place to place in one perpetual victory parade. Through us, he brings knowledge of Christ. EVERYWHERE WE GO, PEOPLE BREATHE IN THE EXQUISITE FRAGRANCE."
2 Corinthians 2:14 MSG
 
The effect of wearing that sweet fragrance of Christ is found in verse 16 of that same Scripture.
 
"To those who are being lost, this perfume smells like death, and it brings them death. But to those who are being saved, it has the sweet smell of life, and it brings them life..."
2 Corinthians 2:16 ERV
 
1. It is a fragrance of death unto wrong relationships.
When the wrong man/woman enters your life, this fragrance brings death to the relationship.
 
2. It is a fragrance of life unto right relationships.
This aroma fosters relationships with the right people.
 
I think, by now, you are pretty much convinced that the fragrance (the signals) you emit, spiritually, determines a whole lot in your life, and a necessary question may be in your mind right now:
 
How do I bear the right fragrance - the fragrance of Christ?
 
God gave us the pattern in Leviticus chapter 9.
 
Verse 1 tells us it was on the eighth day that this instruction came.
 
Number 8 represents a new beginning; this instruction will therefore cause a new beginning in your life, if you obey.
 
How?
 
Verse 6 tells us; it will cause the Glory of the Lord to appear to us.
 
Now the Glory of the Lord is that right fragrance we are talking about!
 
Three offerings were to be carried out to bring God's Glory; and these three offerings will give you the fragrance of Christ:
 
1. The Sin Offering
This was for the purity of the people (verse 7).
So we have to accept the righteousness of God (through Christ), and then allow that righteousness to be expressed through us.
 
Just like Jesus Christ, we have to love righteousness and hate iniquity (Hebrews 1:9).
 
We have to flee from all appearance of evil, and purify ourselves (1 John 3:3).
 
We have to live holy lives (free from unforgiveness, pornography, lying, masturbation, fornication, etc.)
 
2. The Burnt Offering
This is you offering yourself as a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1).
 
Here, you are now living out Galatians 2:20; it is no longer you that lives but Christ living in you.
 
Everything you do becomes an expression of Christ.
It ceases to be what you want, but what God desires.
 
3. The Fellowship Offering
If you have ever been near the fire, you would have learnt that all you have to do to bear the smoky fragrance is to STAY near the fire long enough.
 
The fellowship offering is what brings out the fragrance of Christ in you through your STAYING in His Presence... in fellowship, letting His Presence rub off on you!
 
If you desire His Presence, you must learn the art of the secret place - where you dwell, interact, commune, have intercourse, etc with the Spirit of God.
 
These offerings will make you give off the fragrance of Christ, creating an atmosphere around you that will cause the will of God to be made manifest in your life.
 
CONFESSION FOR THE DAY:
I exude the fragrance of Christ.
 
PRAYER FOR THE DAY:
Lord, help me to carry out the sin, burnt, and fellowship offerings continually.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Your fragrance creates an atmosphere around you which determines who/what follows you.
 
ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY:
1. Deliberately set out ways to offer these 3 offerings in your life continually.
2. Spend at least 2 hours 40 minutes fellowshipping with God (studying, praying, worshipping, etc)
 
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY:
2 Corinthians 2:14-16, Leviticus 9
