"Now thanks be to God, who in the Messiah constantly lead us in a triumphal procession and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of what it means to know Him: For to God we are the aroma of the Messiah”. - 2 Corinthians 2:14-15 (parts)
The perspective of a worker for G-d must not be as near the highest as he can get, it must be the highest. Be careful that you vigorously maintain God's point of view, and remember that it must be done every day, little by little. Do not think on the finite level. No outside power can touch the viewpoint of the Divine.
The proper perspective to maintain is that we are here for one purpose only; to be captives walking in the procession of the triumphs of G-d’s Messiah. We are not on display in G-d's trophy room. We are here to exhibit only one thing; “the captivity (of our lives) to the obedience of the Messiah”. (2 Corinthians 10:5) How small the other points of view are!
There are those who proclaim, “I am standing alone battling for Jesus the Messiah (Yahshua HaMaschiach); I have to maintain the cause of the Messiah and hold this fort for Him. The Rabbi Shaul (Apostle Paul) said, “I am in the procession of a conqueror, and it does not matter what the difficulties are, I am always led in triumph.” Is this idea being worked out practically in our lives?
It was Paul's secret joy that HaShem (“The Name”) took a blatant rebel against the Messiah Yahshua and His talmidim (disciples) and made him captive. That fact became Paul’s whole purpose of life. It was Paul’s joy to be a captive of Adonai (Lord) and he had no other interest in heaven or on earth. We should be ashamed as the Lost Tribes of the House of Israel and now believers in the Jewish Messiah Yahshua (Jesus) for as converted bondservants of the Messiah Yahshua, we continue to talk about becoming victorious or getting the victory. We should be so completely absorbed in “the Victor” that we realize that it is His victory and “we are more than conquers through Him. (Romans 8:37).
As G-d’s disciples, “We are unto G-d a sweet savor of the Messiah.” We are surrounded and encompassed with the sweet aroma of Messiah Yahshua and wherever we go we are a wonderful refreshment and delight to HaShem, the G-d of all peoples.
