19th – 21st August
“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.”
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Jesus is the source of our comfort. The Holy Spirit is given the title ‘comforter’ but His role is leading us into the very presence of Jesus Christ. Comfort is found in Jesus. Peace is found Jesus. Strength and security are all found in Jesus Christ, the Rock of our salvation. It is because He suffered that we can be comforted because He can understand our pain. Moreover, it is because we are comforted, that we can comfort others who are troubled too.
May we share each others burdens in Holy and righteous living. May we share our troubles together through the power and strength found in our relationship with Jesus. We are loved, we are blessed and we are God’s vessels to share His love with others. Only Jesus can provide the comfort we long for. Only Jesus can empower to strengthen and encourage others. Only Jesus…..!!
