Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one’s friend springs from his earnest counsel. Proverbs 27:9
The presence of God in my life is often treated as something I take from the shelf and use at will much like a staple from the pantry. But the joy of Christ in me is difficult to contain. Keeping the lid on Jesus is like bottling a fireworks display.
But how does Christ resonate through me through my brokenness? Is it truly possible? The answer is a resounding YES! I am much like the perfume vessel that has been broken. The grace of God is released and the aroma of Christ in me fills the room! It is sweet and brings joy to the heart!
Lord Jesus, may I learn today to live in my brokenness so that the sweet essence of your Spirit and grace is ever present – unavoidably noticed! And thank you for such pleasantness through your friendship!
