God is my comforter, my teacher, my motivator.
In these verses, we are told our comfort/encouragement abounds through Christ.
God has comforted and encouraged me in so many ways. By his word, by the people he sends into my life, by the work he gives me to do.
God has comforted me through my struggles, then tells me to use that comfort to comfort others when they go through similar troubles.
He is so wise.
How better for me to be encouraged if I am able to take what I have learned, from my own healing and forgiveness, and help someone else who is in pain?
God has helped me much over the years, through his forgiveness, by bringing me out of hardships to new wonders. He’s led me to friends who needed someone to listen. He’s given me the chance to write, to share with others the hope they can have from the forgiveness of Christ, from the care of a loving Father.
God is our comforter. He longs for us to abound in the joy he wants to give us, and then to share that with others.
2 Corinthians 1:3-5: Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.
