the fragrance of christ

The fragrance of Christ is found preeminent in the sacrifice of Christ.  This is Jesus, the perfect God-Man whose body was bruised, broken and shredded.  This, being the perfect sacrifice, the sweet aroma and righteousness that covers us.  God’s wrath is poured upon His Son, diverting judgment and fire from our filthy, undeserving frail selves, whilst covering us with the stainless, perfect robe of His own righteousness.  This is the fragrance and hope for which lifeblood and sweat and tears and utter darkness and damnation were exchanged.
