    Perceiving the Same Thing Differently
    For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? 2 Corinthians 2:15  If you've been on the internet recently, you've probably heard about the audio clip that sounds like different words to different people.

    Paul, called by the will of God to be an apostle of Christ Jesus, and our brother Sosthenes, To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints together with all those who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 1:1 -3 The church at Corinth was messed up!

    But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9 How do you identify yourself? When you introduce yourself to others, what do you say that lets other people know who you really are? I usually say things like . . . "My name is Stuart Mizelle.  I'm a pastor.  I'm married.  I have three children.  I'm originally from North Carolina.  I
