Sovereign Lord, we give thanks to You, who always leads us triumphantly in Christ. We give thanks to You, for through us, You spread everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of You. We are grateful that to You we are the sweet aroma of Christ among those who are being saved – a fragrance that brings life. We are thankful that our competence in building Your glorious kingdom comes from You, and we praise You for Your Spirit brings life. Amen.
