“Live a life filled with love, following the examples of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.” – Ephesians 5:2

When I see the words “a pleasing aroma”, I think of the Yankee Candles my wife loves to burn around our home. This may sound sappy – and I’m sure it does – but those aromas remind me of my wife. They relax me and remind me that somebody loves me. This is exactly how I feel about Christ. Thinking about Him not only relaxes me, but it reminds me that somebody loves me. It’s no wonder His sacrifice was described as “a pleasing aroma to God.”
