Nee: the savour of the Savior

Sunday, March 22, 2015
    For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.
    —2 Corinthians 2:15 (NIV)
    Whenever you meet someone who has really suffered—someone who has gone through experiences with the Lord that have brought limitation, and who, instead of trying to break free in order to be ‘used’, has been willing to be imprisoned by Him and has thus learned to find satisfaction in the Lord and nowhere else — then immediately you become aware of something. Immediately your spiritual senses detect a sweet savour of Christ.
    ... Watchman Nee (1903-1972), The Normal Christian Life, Tyndale House Publishers, 1977, p. 281 (see the book)
    See also 2 Cor. 2:15; Matt. 6:33; 1 Cor. 1:18; Eph. 5:1-2; Phil. 3:8; 4:11-13; 1 Tim. 6:6-9; Heb. 10:34; 13:3; Jas. 1:2-4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may the aroma of holiness visit me today.
