The Aroma of Christ

February 21, 2021 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: 2 Corinthians

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 2:12–17

The Aroma of Christ
2 Corinthians 2:12-17
February 21, 2021
Pastor Rich Lanning



I.   Paul's deep concern for the Corinthians. 2 Corinthians 2:12-13.

II.  Paul is led by Christ in 'triumphal procession'. 2 Corinthians 2:14.


III. His life is a fragrance of both life and death. 2 Corinthians 2:15-16.


IV.  Paul was not a peddler of God's Word. 2 Corinthians 2:17.


Questions for reflection:

  • What is the significance of the 'triumphal procession'?
  • Why would God lead Paul (and us) into places of suffering and loss (v.14)? How
    does this serve the kingdom and promote the gospel?
  • Paul is showing us, by his example, that there ought to be a close connection
    between our Christian message and personal character. Are there places in your
    character that need to be addressed with repentance and growth?
