Triumph in Christ

2 Corinthians 2

12 Furthermore, k when I came to Troas to preach Christ's gospel, and l a 1 door was opened to me by the Lord, 13 m I had no rest in my spirit, because I did not find Titus my brother; but taking my leave of them, I departed for Macedonia.

14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us 2 diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ n among those who are being saved and o among those who are perishing. 16 p To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And q who is sufficient for these things? 17 For we are not, as 3 so many, r peddling 4 the word of God; but as s of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ.
