Spread the Sweet Fragrance…2 Corinthians 2:14
This video originated from one of my memory verses.
2 Corinthians 2:14 (RSV)
14 But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumph, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere.
It is amazing how God works. This memory verse was from my old treasure and now has become new treasure for people to be encouraged.
Matthew 13:52 (NKJV)
52 Then He said to them, "Therefore every scribe instructed concerning the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure things new and old."
Matthew 13:52 (AMP)
52 He said to them, Therefore every teacher and interpreter of the Sacred Writings who has been instructed about and trained for the kingdom of heaven and has become a disciple is like a householder who brings forth out of his storehouse treasure that is new and [treasure that is] old [the fresh as well as the familiar].
