Consider the amazing provision for we who are God’s own.

Scripture says that God leads us in a triumphant procession with Jesus.

We are a pleasing aroma to God; a fragrance that is potent both for those who are pursuing and those who are rejecting him. This is not something we conjure up. We are a delightful fragrance and we are already on display as victors in the most consequential of all ventures.

God has promised to use every experience beneficially [Romans 8:28, 2 Corinthians 4:17]. More surprisingly, you and I are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from him!

What’s crazy is that these promises are not conditioned on our achievement. It is God who has performed spectacularly, and, as a result, we receive the splendor of his magnificence. [2 Corinthians 3:18]
