"I Corinthians 2:14 is my favorite verse because when Christ is infused in my life, his knowledge is diffused in every place. In science we learn that diffusion requires no additional energy. It occurs when items move from areas of high to low concentration. However, the effectiveness of the diffusion process can be altered in three ways: increase concentration (fill up on God's word), increase the heat (our passion and love for God and others), and increase movement (service, good works). 'Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of his knowledge in every place.'"
