WE ARE CHRIST'S FRAGRANCE...

The Bible says we are the aroma (fragrance) of Christ. Let's spread that fragrance around!

2 Corinthians 2:15, : For we are to God the aroma of Christ, among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.

Is the Grass greener on the other side?


Hi family and friends..
It may look as if the grass is always 

"Greener on the other side".
Sometime we feel the place where we are planted is not as flourishing and green as the other side looks.
So some of us switch places, jobs so often only to find it's the same there.
Sometimes people from the other side paint bright pictures of the "Other side", or may offer extra bonus, incentives to lure us there.  
If we don't let our Lord Jesus Christ design our life plan and learn to be fruitful where He plants us, chances are we'll fall into someone else's plan. 
And guess what, when we go the other side against God's will, we'll be discouraged to find things are the same or sometimes worse.
The enemy sometimes tries to draw us away from where we are (the place of God's will and plan) into his snare, by confusing us. So let's be careful and discern.
So before we move to the other side, let us be fruitful where God's placed us. Then to our surprise we will find, as someone said..
"The Grass is always greener where we water it."
Before we water the place where we are planted, let's not move.
Know that if we water the place where we are planted the Grass will always be greener where we stand.
Let's overcome the difficulties we face and flourish where we are.
God prunes us where we are planted to make us more fruitful.
John 15:2 "He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful."
Success and promotions don't come immediately, God sees our faithfulness and will promote us in His time.
" The Road to Success is Always Under Construction."
PROMOTIONS COME ONLY FROM GOD and NOT MAN.

Psalm 75: 6 For exaltation comes neither from the east
Nor from the west nor from the south.
7 But God is the Judge: He puts down one,
And exalts another.

When we are faithful in small things God will lift us up in due season. Let's faithful in the place we are. The job in our hands may be small, may not give us the fame, name and attention but God sees our heart.
Matthew 25: 23 "His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'
Let's be faithful in God's house too!
Hebrews 3:2 He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God's house. 
3 John 1:5 Dear friend, you are faithful in what you are doing for the brothers, even though they are strangers to you.
Stay blessed
