COMFORTED TO BE A COMFORTER
So that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves received from God
2 Corinthians 1:4
Paul says we experience God comforting us in our suffering, not only to benefit ourselves but so that the comfort we receive from God may become a means for us in comforting and blessings others.
If we we begin to see our situations from an entirely new and strengthened perspective.that loving others overrides looking after ourselves and that in our suffering, God comforts us so that we can comfort others.
When we bring God into our circumstances and understand that loving our neighbors comes first, Christ becomes our strength to deal with our struggles, which then equips us to be a source of blessing to others.
Suffering is actually productive, and God's Spirit in us will give us a different focus in which the wounds of our lives can become the ministry of our lives.
Lord Jesus, only Your Spirit within us can turn our focus to others in the midst of suffering. Thank You for comforting us and for giving us the chance to share that comfort with others. In Your Holy name. Amen
