This is a word from Pastor
Timothy Burdick, Minister of Abilities for
the First Church on the Net:
Many people practice aroma therapy, deriving
the health benefits from fragrant oils. In
the Bible, oil is used as a type of the Holy
Spirit and we are told by Paul the Apostle
to walk or live in that Spirit.
Read how Paul says aroma therapy is part of
the Christian life and then I will give you
some tips on practicing it - “Thanks
be to God, who always leads us in triumphal
procession in Christ and through us spreads
everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of
him. For we are to God the aroma of Christ
among those who are being saved and those
who are perishing. To the one we are the
smell of death; to the other, the fragrance
of life. And who is equal to such a task?”
(2 Corinthians 2:14-16).
procession” in Christ, in God’s
Spirit, simply means making your body a
continual home for Him. If you prepare your
house for a special friend, you do your
upmost to make that person feel comfortable.
Shouldn’t we do more for the Creator of the
The first thing we need to do then is
realize just who This Holy Spirit is. He is
not an “it” like some people think. He is a
person who intends to be the best Friend
you’ll ever have.
Many people think of walking in Christ, in
the Spirit as being difficult, but it
doesn’t have to be. Back to when you hear
about some friend of yours who is coming to
your home - you rearrange the furniture and
clean the house!
That is what God is asking you to do.
Confess any sin in your life that would stop
the flow of the Holy Spirit. Make Him number
one in all areas of your life. As you do
this, you will find a new joy, and your life
will be filled with purpose and meaning.
This is not to say that things will
necessarily be easy, but God will be with
you in a deeper way and the sweet "fragrance"
of your life will be obvious to all.
