THE FRAGRANCE OF CHRIST

Father God, thank You for the Fragrance of Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ. This God Sonnet was inspired by the Bible verse: “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 give off and emit (BOTH) the Fragrance of Christ for the praised and perishing/saved and succumbing (4 for BOTH). It is Jesus Who we are cherishing and “in”coming when we produce the Fragrance of Christ. How do we do this? Scent of LOVE, so profuse and so Above (BOTH). “Do everything ‘in’ LOVE” (1 Corinthians 16:14). When we are ‘in” LOVE with Jesus, we are the very Fragrance of Christ for those who need Jesus. And let’s face it….we ALL need Jesus! If not for the Cross and Christ Sacrificed (BOTH), no Scent of LOVE from the Fragrance of Christ. That we pained Him, that we gained the Fragrance of Him. On a more personal note, what a splendid day was yesterday when I walked Acadiana Walks for suicide prevention, having raised the goal set for donations, and when I met with good parents and good friends (BOTH) for fellowship and a vegan chocolate raspberry cake! God was all miracles yesterday in my daily leavened bread, many I desire to share with you if you be of the interest. And on an even more personal, SAVE THE BEES! As the picture informs us, only one bee for the fragrance is the “in”coming of ALL bees extinct. man-made pesticides are killing ALL bees, soon to be extinct because we are tampering with the delicate balance of ALL God’s Creation. If we kill ALL the bees, then we kill ALL God’s Creation. Read more about saving bees and signing petitions to save them at: https://savebees.org/petitions/. i pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and Perfumed Name of Jesus Christ, the Name above every other name, including my own name. This prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are “stink.” Amen.

(God’s Sonnet by timothy j. verret; “it’s how i cope to hope [BOTH] in the Fragrance of Christ produced for the scent of LOVE to ALL God’s Creation this daily leavened bread.”)

To them, you give off the Fragrance of Christ.

To them, perfumed for praised and perishing.

To God, you’re in Him a Cologne of Christ.

To God, you’re in Him Who you’re cherishing.

To them, i emit the Fragrance of Christ.

To them, savored for saved and succumbing.

To God, i’m in Him a Bouquet of Christ.

To God, i’m in Him Who i’m “in”coming.

“I AM the Fragrance that they must produce,”

says Jesus. “How they do this? Scent of LOVE.

To GOD, they’re in ME a LOVE so profuse.

To GOD, they’re in ME a LOVE so Above.”

If not for the Cross and Christ Sacrificed,

no Scent of LOVE from the Fragrance of Christ.
