A FRAGRANT SCENT
Have you heard about the man who smelled good no matter where he was or what he was doing? His skin and clothing and very being seemed to exude a pleasant fragrance. he worked in a perfume factory and breathes its aromas every day. They filtered into his clothing, penetrated his skin, and even filled his lungs. he became a walking perfumery.
That's the way we should be as Christians. The Bible says, "For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing." (2 Corinthians 2:15) We exude the aroma of joy, for in His presence is fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11)
You might have head that "Jesus wept (John 11:35) is the shortest verse in the Bible, but that's only true in the English translation. In the original New Testament Greek 1 Thessalonians 5:16 is shorter.--Rejoice always." The two verses are related. Because Jesus wept, we can rejoice. He doesn't want us to live in perpetual discouragement, sadness or doubt. The joy of the Lord is the strength of our days. We have a reason to rejoice.
I remember the whole verse in Thessalonians is Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice. It is one of my favorites.
