A Daily Devotion for Tuesday, January 19


2 Corinthians 2:10-16


verses 14-15: But 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.

Every single thing done in God’s name, with the goal of mirroring God’s love, can leave behind the fragrance of Christ. This is what defines these acts of love and kindness as different, and special. They are acts done in love, for the glory of God. These acts may be small and seemingly insignificant, or they may be huge self-sacrificing events. If I have Christ in mind whenever I meet with others, I can be an ambassador for Him. I represent His love, and need to remember this. I must be mindful of what I leave behind.

Heavenly Father, May I leave behind the fragrance of Christ. Amen

2 Corinthians 2:11 - “And we do this so that we may not be outwitted by Satan; for we are not ignorant of his designs.”


“This,” in the context of Paul’s letter is forgiveness. In reality all we do, when done in the name of Jesus to the glory of God, is an end run around Satan’s plan for our destruction. Who would have thought buying boxes of individually wrapped snacks would give Satan fits? Yet here come the Transformers, sharing the love of God and outwitting the evil one. I give thanks for each of you.


Prayer - God of love, please let our message of appreciation and Your love be heard above the din of the stress and…
