SUFFERING WTIH COMFORT

 
2 Corinthians 1:5


"For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows." NIV


"For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ." KJV


We are well aware as Christians that we will have tribulations because of our faith. If our Lord and Saviour suffered such, why would we expect to escape suffering? Take heart fellow Christians. Jesus Christ lavishes us with comfort that more than adequately outweighs the trials we suffer. Through Him we have been redeemed, given the Holy Spirit, and the reward of eternal life. The sufferings are so temporary. The comfort is everlasting.


Heavenly Father, we stand in need of Your grace as we face the trials that result from our faith in You. We thank You and praise You for the comfort You so freely give us. Help us to rest in that comfort so that we will endure to the end. In Jesus' name. Amen.
