God’s Promise to the Ordinary Person


Now thanks be unto God, which always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the fragrance of his knowledge by us in every place. 

Ah … isn’t God so good? In us fragile, weak people He makes us to always triumph in Christ and to share His beautiful fragrance in every place.

Christian, you are lovely, you know that right? And not by your own doing. No, you are a light and a bit of salt in a dark and rotting world and it’s simply all God’s good work in you.

Wife, you are a light to your home — even when the floors are sticky with jam and the children seem to be the only social contact you have. Husband, you are declaring Christ through your faithful work and effort each day; whether you’re the local plumber, prison guard, pastor or mailman you are declaring Christ simply by doing what you’ve been called to do: provide and protect.

Sometimes, we think we need to do big and awesome things to declare God. And sometimes we do.

But most of the time, it’s the little, everyday activities which God uses to reveal His delightful fragrance to the world.

Never forget that.

Love, blessings and coffee,

    I agree with Amy, this was such a helpful little gem of a post!! In a world that’s always telling us to be bigger and braver and more accomplished, it’s good to remember that all we really need to do is love Jesus and love our neighbor in whatever small way we can; and that is enough.

    I love you, dear! I’m so glad the Lord is comforting your heart in these busy, healing days. I’m going to keep you and D. in my prayers!
