THE SMELL OF TRIUMPH
The blood of Jesus Christ his son cleanseth us from all sin. (1 John 1:7)
“God wants you to apply the blood of Jesus to your life in every situation and smell like the triumph of Christ.” – Mark Hankins
Several years ago on one of our family vacations, I decided to drive through a wild animal park in Oklahoma. We purchased some small buckets of feed to give to the various animals as we drove through. A llama came strolling up and I began to feed him out of my bucket. All of a sudden, he forced his whole head in the window and ate out of my bucket with his whole head in my lap. The llama pulled his head out of the bucket and sneezed in my van! Llama spit and snot and slimy stuff went all across the front dash and on our clothes!
Sin and Satan are the same way. When the devil gets his head in your life, he will not leave until he has sneezed on you and made a mess. Jesus shed His blood, died, and rose from the dead to undo all that the devil has done. God not only wants to get the devil’s head out and clean up the mess, but He also wants you to be free from the smell of the past. God does not want you to smell like sin, failure, guilt, and shame.
Confession: The blood of Jesus cleanses us from all sin. Thank God for the Blood of Jesus!
