Bible: 2 Corinthians 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.
