Context
Triumph in Christ

12Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ's gospel, and a door was opened to me of the Lord, 13I had no rest in my spirit, because I found not Titus my brother: but taking my leave of them, I went from there into Macedonia. 14Now thanks be to God, which always causes us to triumph in Christ, and makes manifest the aroma of his knowledge by us in every place. 15For we are to God a sweet smell of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: 16To the one we are the smell of death to death; and to the other the smell of life to life. And who is sufficient for these things? 17For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.
