How Do Your Words Smell

What fragrance rises up from your words to the LORD? Is it a sweet smelling pleasing aroma or is it of stench?

Our words are so important. You see what we say here on this earth we are releasing in heaven. So if we are going around talking about our neighbors, or saying hurtful things to our love ones, we are sending up a stench offering to the LORD. That's right, your words are an offering to the LORD when you speak them. If we are praising HIM, we are obviously sending a pleasing aroma to our GOD.

2 Cor 2 v 14-17....Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things? For we are not, as so many peddling the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ......

WOW! When we speak to others about the word of God, we are speaking life or death into them. Life if they choose to accept His gospel, and death if they reject it. That statement shows you how much power your words have in them.

Ephes 5 v 2...And walk in love, as Christ also has saved us and given Himself for us, an offering and sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling aroma.....

Christ knew that His sacrifice on the cross would bring a sweet smelling aroma to GOD. Why? Because of His love for us, He let Our Father's will be done and not His own.

PS 19 v 14.....Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer....

When we as children of God speak, He listens. HELLO! So what comes out of your mouth, goes straight to His ears. AMEN! Now don't go getting all condemned thinking you can't possibly watch every word that comes from your mouth. That is not what this message is about.

This message is to teach us that we are to pay attention to our words, be slow to speak, in other words think before we speak, and also to be more thoughtful of the fragrance of our actions and what we are sending up to God. AMEN!

Matt. 16 v 19.....and I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.....

Remember, you do not want God in heaven saying " what is that awful smell and who is it coming from'?

Be kind to one another and walk in love toward each other and think before you speak. AMEN!

Stay in the WORD!
