Sweet Aroma

            Numbers 15:6-7 says, “For a ram you shall prepare as a grain offering two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with one-third of a hin of oil; and as a drink offering you shall offer one-third of a hin of wine as a sweet aroma to the LORD.   

            Joel 1:13-15 says, “Gird yourselves and lament, you priests; Wail, you who minister before the altar; Come, lie all night in sackcloth, You who minister to my God; For the grain offering and the drink offering are withheld from the house of your God. Consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly; Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the LORD your God, and cry out to the LORD. Alas for the day! For the day of the LORD is at hand; It shall come as destruction from the Almighty.”

            Isaiah 3:24 says, “And so it shall be: Instead of a sweet smell there will be a stench.”

            These three Scriptures sum things up pretty good. Destruction is at hand. We can either be a sweet aroma to the Lord or we can be a stench to the Lord. Despite all the evil we are surrounded by, it is our choice whether we want to be that ‘sweet savor’ (KJV) to the Lord in a land where there is so much stench. He no longer looks to the offerings of grain, wine and animals. His nostrils are trained upon us. We are the offering now because the Holy Spirit lives inside of us. The choice is yours of what kind of aroma you give off!
