Message of the Day: The God of All Comfort

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4, NKJV)

God would bring his final comfort to his people with the Messiah’s coming, but he also comforted them in their hardships during the present. The principle that suffering teaches one to treat others is rooted in the Old Testament (Exodus 23:9). Paul’s specific comfort in this verse is probably because he found Titus well and with good news about the Corinthians.

One of the reason why Christians suffer all kinds of troubles is that they may know how to sympathize with and help others who are similarly troubled. Just as they share in Christ’s sufferings, so they can share in his comfort. God is the source of our comfort, consolation and encouragement. This comfort flows to us when we suffer for Jesus’ sake, and it equips us to comfort others who are in trouble.

  1. John 16:33
    Where one gets told about life here on earth, yet don’t fear for he , Christ has overcome the world

    Amazing this is reported, that he said this before his death, burial and resurrection
    We will have troubles!
    I certainly have!
    Along with everyone else too

    Therefore how I view it, has the controls of it

    Proverbs 23:1-7
    As a man thinks so is he
