A Special Inspiration
Thanks to Andrea, at Arise 2 Write, I'm able to post about this lovely Inspirational Blog Award today. It was created by a young teenage girl, a blogger who loves the Lord. Andrea displayed it today on her website for those of us who follower her blog and I wanted to do the same on my blog. I hope it blesses many as it blessed me! Have a wonderful day, everyone. Keep writing inspirationally as you live for Jesus. I eagerly pass this on to you, my followers, too.
The Message Bible speaks about 2 Corinthians 2:15-16 like this:
14-16 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. Because of Christ, we give off a sweet scent rising to God, which is recognized by those on the way of salvation—an aroma redolent with life. But those on the way to destruction treat us more like the stench from a rotting corpse.
16-17 This is a terrific responsibility. Is anyone competent to take it on? No— but at least we don't take God's Word, water it down, and then take it to the streets to sell it cheap. We stand in Christ's presence when we speak; God looks us in the face. We get what we say straight from God and say it as honestly as we can.
