Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound for us, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:3-5
I praise You for being a God so full of compassion and comfort. I pray that You help me to always look to You in obedience, doing Your will and trusting You with everything. Every time I mess up, please help me to run right back into Your merciful arms, confessing my sins to You and repenting. How I praise You for your endless mercy, rooted in Your infinite love for me!
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the most comforting thing in the world to us as Christians. It’s the best news known to mankind; the greatest hope imaginable; the supreme promise of perfect peace to all who believe. The gospel is the Truth, and the Truth is the most loving thing there is! The Truth is Jesus Christ Himself.
We all need the gospel. The gospel is not to make our lives more comfortable, but the gospel is to change us, to save us, and to bring to us a real sense of comfort in God Himself. Jesus Christ is not a means to easy or comfortable living, but He is our comfort. He is our joy. He is our hope. He is our peace. He is our everything. When we have Christ, we have everything we will ever need. Lord, please help me to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who are still lost. I pray that You touch them with Your grace, soften their hearts, and open their eyes so that they may believe in You too and be saved.
All glory belongs to You, my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
In Jesus’ name, I pray amen.
