2 Corinthians 1-2
Paul writes a second letter to the Corinthian church. He begins his letter by discussing some of the hardships he has been through and how God has comforted him. The comfort he receives from God equips him to comfort others who are suffering. He then explains why his trip he had detailed at the end of his previous letter was postponed.
God gives us comfort so we can comfort others. When we go through hardships, we should be able to turn to God and ask him to comfort and strengthen us. As we do, the comfort we are given enables us to share Christ’s comfort with others. And people are able to do the same for us. It is a mutually beneficial comfort that God provides through his Holy Spirit. Christ’s comfort overflows in us so we have enough to share.
Are you sharing Christ’s comfort with others?
