But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. 2 Corinthians 2:14
He is in the lead, and we, His chosen warriors march behind Him enjoying the benefits of His conquest. Those who march along in the procession of Christ are emitting everywhere about them the sweet fragrance of the knowledge of Him.
The fragrance results from knowing Jesus Christ personally!
That distinctive sweet smell is the Spirit of God bearing His fruit in the lives of believers. It is a rich bouquet of the fruit of the Spirit.
