Do you like some smells that drive other people crazy? Isn’t that weird? I like the smell of gun-powder, some people think it stinks. I like the smell of the farm, some people think it stinks. On the other hand, some people wear perfume that smells like Lilacs, I don’t care for that smell. Some people like strong candles, they usually give me a headache. Did you know the gospel has a smell? To some people it is the stench of death to others it is the aroma of life. The Lord Jesus is diffusing the knowledge of Himself through believers everywhere they go. Some people like the smell of the gospel and some hate it. This is so strange. Why would anyone say that the gospel, the good news, is like the stench of death? The stench of death is a smell that everybody loathes but the gospel doesn’t smell bad to me. In fact, the gospel is the life of God through Jesus Christ both now and forever! We hope to discuss this strange phenomenon this coming Sunday as we study the trip Paul and Barnabas took to Iconium. Some people loved what they were sharing and some people hated it so much they ran them out of town. How does the gospel smell to you?
