“If you can’t do great things, do small things in a great way,” Napolean Hill.
Wonder what Napolean would think about minding ones own business, as a small way of doing a great thing.
Now thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowlwdge 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, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. Who is sufficient for these things? (cp. 2 Corinthians 2:14-16),
Answer, those who walk the Christ talk without the need for the fanfare of recognition. The Spirit of God is the silent carrier and convictor of our Christ fragrance.
Note according to Jesus, “The Holy Spirit will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment. Of sin because they do not believe in Me, of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you will see me no more. Of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.” (cp. John 16:8-11).
It’s not that God needs me or you to accomplish His purposes Because He has already declared that He will act according to His own counsel and pleasure. (cp. Isaiah 46:9-10).
We are His fragrance as a matter of privilge. But God is merciful and gracious. Declaring, “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me to give to everyone according to their work. Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. (cp. Revelation 22:12;14).
