Bible: 2 Cor 1:3-7
Thanksgiving for God’s Comfort
1:3 Blessed is 1 the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 1:4 who comforts us in all our troubles 2 so that we may be able to comfort those experiencing any trouble 3 with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 1:5 For just as the sufferings 4 of Christ 5 overflow 6 toward us, so also our comfort through Christ overflows to you. 7 1:6 But if we are afflicted, 8 it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort that you experience in your patient endurance of the same sufferings that we also suffer. 1:7 And our hope for you is steadfast because we know that as you share in 9 our sufferings, so also you will share in 10 our comfort.
