Pleasing Aroma

Dear Saints, it is good to be gathered here as a pleasing aroma to the Lord. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. He is our Father and we are His children. His love has extended down to us in His own Son, through sin and death, triumphing over them in the cross, and He has brought us through sin and death to righteousness and life.
         We are pleased to be here in peace with God and men. But God is also pleased to be here. Jesus has gathered us as friends. His Father is our Father. The Holy Spirit dwells with and in us. We are no longer at enmity with God or with one another. We are of one mind and one body. One Lord, one faith, one baptism.

         This is a beautiful thing. It looks, smells, tastes, feels and sounds glorious. We are glad our Father is pleased and we are also pleased.
